Actor Uday Chopra finds rumours of a relationship with Yash Raj Films (YRF) discovery Parineeti Chopra "ridiculous".
"Whoa! @ParineetiChopra and I are NOT dating guys...it's kinda ridiculous! And she doesn't call me Sir, though I think she should start," tweeted Uday.
Parineeti's Bollywood career kicked off with Yash Raj Films' (YRF) "Ladies vs Ricky Bahl". She followed up its success with "Ishaqzaade".

TV actor Sachin Parikh, who is seen as wife-beater Jagan Mehta in "Kuch Toh Log Kahenge", says he enjoys playing negative characters as they are more challenging, and hopes to move to Bollywood soon.
"I always like to do negative roles. Television has very less leverage for an actor to perform at times. Most shows are based on family and have goody-goody roles. But when you get a role which is not done in normal life, it becomes a challenge for an actor and I enjoy that," Sachin told IANS.
Small is big in Bollywood. In the first five months, small-budget non-commercial films have kept the cash registers ringing and kept filmmakers happy, trade experts say, adding that the icing on the cake has been three biggies that crossed the Rs.100 crore ($22 million) mark. In the second half, all eyes will be on the Khans.
A bouquet of non-commercial offerings - "Kahaani", "Vicky Donor" and "Ishaqzaade" - turned into big successes at the ticket window, which also saw biggies "Agneepath", "Housefull 2" and "Rowdy Rathore" doing roaring business.
