The rumours about roping in Deepika Padukone for the film I started making rounds in the air, after it was announced that it will be shot simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Talking to PTI, Deepika said, "I got a google alert about it (this film), but they are all rumours. I am not doing Shankar's film."
Deepika's fresh look was very much appreciated in Cocktail. She has maintained herself, but she does not believe much in the size-zero concept. Talking about her figure, Dips said, "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."
Shankar's next movie I is a romantic-thriller, which is produced by Aascar Ravichandran. The makers wanted actress Samantha to play the lead role, but she walked out of the project due to date issues. Later, they have reportedly roped in actress Amy Jackson to feature alongside Vikram in the movie.
