Telugu actor Ram Charan Teja, who made his Bollywood debut with "Zanjeer" remake in 2013, said that he is not sharing screen space with superstar Salman Khan. Last year, reports of Ram working with Salman in a Bollywood movie surfaced online, which the former denied it.

Ram, who is currently shooting for the Telugu remake of Tamil film "Thani Oruvan," revealed that Salman approached him for producing a film, but they are not working together.

"No, I don't know how these rumours are coming in. I am not starring in a film with Salman Khan," Ram, son of Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi, told IANS.

"But it was very nice of him when he once approached and said he wants to produce a film, and but of course the script and everything he has to select... but we are not acting together as of now."

Salman shares a good bond with Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi and his family and thus he turned Ram's saviour when his debut Bollywood film bombed at the box office. In October 2015, a leading entertainment portal reported that after a disastrous debut, Salman advised Ram against signing a solo-project.

"Ramcharan Teja's second Hindi film would be a 2-hero project. Salman Khan may step in to play one of the leads," Bollywood Hungama quoted a source, close to the development, as saying.

However, Ram clarified that he is not sharing screen-space with the "Sultan" actor.

Talking about his Bollywood projects, Ram was the first choice for Ashutosh Gowariker's historical drama "Mohenjo Daro." But the actor could not take up the project and now Hrithik Roshan has finished shooting for the film as the lead.

"Yes, there were talks for that project. But that didn't work out. Very soon, I'll be doing another Hindi film," Ram said.
