I am not doing Shankar's film: Deepika
Actress Deepika Padukone has rubbished reports that she is doing ace Tamil director Shankar's upcoming film.
The South filmmaker garnered a lot of applause with Rajinikanth-starrer 'Sivaji' (2007) and 'Robot' (2010). There was a buzz that Shankar's next film is with Tamil superstar Vikram, who romanced Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Mani Ratnam's 'Raavan' and that Deepika will play his love interest but the 26-year-old actress has quashed these talks.
The film will be shot simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. "I got a google alert about it (this film), but they are all rumours. I am not doing Shankar's film," Deepika told reporters here last evening at an event.
Meanwhile, Deepika, whose fresh look was very much appreciated in 'Cocktail', does not believe on crash diets. "The idea is not to repeat the look I had in 'Cocktail'. It was apt for that film. Of course one wants to experiment with the look..I want to do something different," Deepika said.
"I did alter my diet a bit. But since I have always been fit, I did not have to go on crash exercise. I needed a bit of tweaking. I don't believe in crash diets. For me working out and eating healthy is part of my lifestyle. I don't do it for a particular film," she said.
Though the model-turned-actress has maintained herself she does not believe much in the size-zero concept. "I feel size zero does not matter.. fitness and health should come first. I know people who are heavy but have great stamina. There is nothing wrong being size zero as long as it is a healthy size zero," she said. PTI
