Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has maintained her constant spot on the front page has finally broken her silence over whether or not she will be attending the 89th Annual Academy Awards and you probably will not like the answer. Deepika clarified that she will, in fact, not be attending the Oscars 2017 ceremony. She also addressed the rumours regarding her being cast in a certain Mr & Mrs Smith remake.
Earlier, rumours surrounding her presence at the Oscars had surfaced over a few Instagram posts by her stylist Elizabeth Saltzman.
While rebutting the claims that she will be attending the Oscar Awards, Deepika stated that she is not a part of a Bollywood remake of Mr & Mrs Smith. The 2005 Hollywood film, which starred Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (and marked the infamous Pitt-Aniston split), was the story of a married couple who find out they are both trained assassins out to kill each other.
“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,” Deepika 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 all my life. When I have something else to talk about I will do that,” she added.
After her Bajirao Mastani co-star Priyanka Chopra moved over to the west, Deepika Padukone too kicked off her Hollywood career with her debut xXx: Return of Xander Cage. Starring alongside Vin Diesel, Ruby Rose and Nina Dobrev, Deepika stunned the west with her exotic aura. The film was a huge commercial success and collected over Rs 2062 crores globally.
