Deepika Padukone refuses doing ‘Mr & Mrs. Smith’ remake


Grapevine buzzed that Deepika Padukone will star in the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Mr & Mrs. Smith’ remake but the diva veheently denied the report. The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actress confirmed that she is neither doing ‘Mr & Mrs. Smith’ remake nor making a red carpet appearance at Oscars this weekend.

“Well, let’s set the record straight because there have been a lot of rumours regarding a lot of films I am supposedly doing. I think usually there is a lot of dignity involved when an actor is approached for a film, whether it’s a narration or when an actor saying yes or no to a film,” she said.

‘Mr & Mrs. Smith’ starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in the lead role. It is the story of a married couple that is shocked to learn that they are both have hired murderer to kill each other.

Deepika was speaking at the launch of Gillette Venus Breeze here.

“I had always maintained, when I am offered a film, I’ll talk about it, if not, I’ll never talk about it. All the speculation can go on. The only film I am doing now is Padmavati, it’s consuming all my life. When I have something else to talk about I will do that,” she said.

The Bajirao Mastani star said, “There is a certain decorum, conduct when you’re offered a film, whether you do it or don’t. I feel it’s not a very classy thing when an untrue information is given out regarding my work.”

Deepika Padukone, who made her Hollywood debut with xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, was quipped about walking the red carpet at the Academy Awards. The actress cleared the air, saying: “That’s an interesting question but no, no.

Currently, Deepika Padukone is busy with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ featuring Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in pivotal roles.
