Contradicting the strong rumors about her playing the female lead in the Hindi remake of Hollywood hit ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’, actress Deepika Padukone, has denied the news as plain gossip. The actress has lashed out at the media for indulging in speculations without attempting to verify their facts. Deepika clarified that, currently she has only Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ in her hands and there are no plans of taking up any new projects until she is done with Bhansali’s project.
The actress further stated that, as soon as she signs any new film, her fans will be the first ones to know about the same.

‘Padmavati’ will have Deepika essaying the role of Rani Padmini, Queen of Mewar, who becomes a center of obsession for the Mughal ruler Alauddin Khilji, a role being played by Ranveer Singh.
