The actress was recently in Bangalore to promote her "Happy New Year". One of the questions that she was asked by the journalists was whether the actress was willing to return to Sandalwood.

There have been rumours for a while about leading Kannada producer Rockline Venkatesh planning a project with Khan. The buzz is that Rohit Shetty would helm the movie and the sources close to the production house has neither confirmed nor denied the reports.

The news of Venkatesh does not come as a surprise to the industry as the producer is currently making mega-budget Tamil movie "Lingaa" starring Rajinikanth, Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Shetty in the lead and recently he had produced Ravi Teja's Telugu movie "Power". So, the buzz cannot be ruled out at this stage.
