New York, Mar 26 : Disney execs have shot down the reports that they are considering casting a Persian prince in their next venture titled 'Prince of Persia: Sands of Time'.
Prince David K. Zandi is believed to be circulating an official-looking 'Worldwide Audience Poll' that shows him the favourite of 17 million movie fans.
Zandi had told a reporter "Most people are fascinated that a real Persian with royal lineage could be hired to play this role."
However, Disney's rep denies the reports.
"There is absolutely no truth [to the rumour that Zandi is being considered]. The speculation is self-created," New York Post quoted a rep as saying.
The film to be produced by Oscar winning producer Jerry Bruckheimer is the movie version of the video game.
