When asked to confirm the news, Meghna didn't deny the news, but said: "I am unable to comment on that right now. I am extremely sorry."
Sources close to the project, which is scripted by Vishal Bhardwaj who is also co-producing the film, said that Tabu is part of the project titled "Talwar" along with Irrfan. "About 80 percent of the shoot is completed," said a source.
Meghna roped in Tabu and Sushmita Sen for her directorial debut "Filhaal", while for her second venture "Just Married" she had teamed up with Esha Deol and Fardeen Khan.
