Mumbai: After the mammoth success of ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’, rumours of Deepika Padukone doing another Hollywood film with her ‘xxx’ co-star Vin Diesel were all over the internet. But, at a recent event, the beautiful actress cleared the air saying that she has not signed any projects yet.
When the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actress was asked about her upcoming projects in Holywood, Deepika reportedly said, “No nothing happening in Hollywood as yet. Would let you know for sure but yes, a lot of films coming on way and I’m happy.”
DP is currently busy with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s (SLB) highly controversial period drama ‘Padmavati’. Deepika, who plays the character of Rani Padmavati in the film, reacted to the recent acts of vandalism on the sets of the film calling them ‘childish’ and based media for it.
“Sanjay Leela Bhansali is someone who lives for cinema and I've never met anyone more passionate. I know for a fact that he will take everything in a positive way and pour it back into the movie. He's here to tell a story through his film and glorify Padmavati…These complaints are attacks are childish and based on some tabloid news. Media should be mindful of these things. It's gossipy for them but look at the end result! People could've died,” said Deepika.
In January, a few Karni Sena activists barged into the sets of ‘Padmavati’ in Jaigarh Fort (Jaipur) and beat up the Director. If that wasn’t enough, the film set was vandalised for the second time and set on fire in Kolhapur earlier this month. Bhansali has been accused of distorting facts and portraying the historical character of Rani Padmavati in poor light.
The film will also see Shahid Kapoor as Padmavati’s husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as the 13th century tyrant Alauddin Khilji....
