Deepika Padukone says she was not approached to act in Endhiran. She said this in an exclusive interview. Deepika told,” I made my debut in a Kannada film titled Aishwarya. Though my Hindi films Om Shanti Om and Bacchna A Hasino were block busters , I have not forgotten South Indian cinema .
In between there were news that I was approached to act in Endhiran and I turned down this offer. There is no truth in this. Nobody approached me with regard to this.
Maybe I would have acted if I had been approached. The film Chandni Chowk to China Town featuring me and Akshay Kumar is releasing next month. I am donning dual roles like in Om Shanthi Om. I am donning a soft home loving character and the other one in a tough role which is action oriented. I am lucky because all my film have been a hit. Directors have exposed my talents. I am thankful to them. I am also acting in a film with Saif Ali Khan. Being a daughter of a badminton player, I want to act in sports oriented films. I am willing to act even in a cricket based film”.
