The filmmaker garnered a lot of applause with Rajinikanth-starrer 'Sivaji' (2007) and 'Robot' (2010) and there was a buzz that Shankar's next film is with Tamil superstar Vikram and Deepika, 26, will play his love interest.
"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. The film will be shot simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Meanwhile, Deepika, whose fresh look was very much appreciated in 'Cocktail', says she 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. "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 but she does not believe much in the size-zero concept also. "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.
