There were reports about Deepika Padukone being roped in as the female lead for the Hindi remake of the Hollywood hit Mr & Mrs Smith (2005). It was also said that she is being cast opposite Sidharth Malhotra. But the actress has clarified that the only film she is involved in right now is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati.

Talking to a news agency, Padukone said, “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 my life. When I have something else to talk about I will do that.” 

Padukone is clearly not happy with the rumours linking her to the film. “Let’s set the record straight because there have been a lot of rumours regarding a lot of films I am supposedly doing," she said. "I think usually there is a lot of dignity involved when an actor is approached for a film, whether it's a narration, an actor saying yes or no to a film. Sometimes it’s not classy when certain information is given out when it's completely untrue."

Padmavati is scheduled to be released on 17 November this year. The film also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
