Deepika Padukone is not yet ready to let the cat out of the bag as far as her picture with Vin Diesel goes. The image that she had shared on Twitter had sparked speculations about her impending Hollywood debut.

However, Deepika Padukone clarified that she is yet to ink a deal in west and that she has not signed a single film in Bollywood as well. Replying to our direct question, Deepika said, “Just to set the record straight, I have signed no new films as of 2016. I have not signed any film here either.”

The actress, however, preferred to remain tightlipped when asked about her picture with Vin Diesel. “It is photoshopped. It is the same bald head that Akshay Kumar used, ” joked Deepika.

Deepika Padukone, however, said that she is open to projects in the west. “I am creatively open to idea of working in Hollywood. I would like to explore working in a different set up.”

Deepika Padukone did three films this year – “Piku” with megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan, “Tamasha” with ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor and the soon-to-be-released Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Bajirao Mastani”, opposite rumoured beau Ranveer Singh.

In the past, Deepika had rejected some plum offers, including “Dhoom 3”, “Shuddhi” among others. “Rejected is a harsh word.

Actors are never in a position to reject anything. Actors are offered films, if you feel connected enough you do it and if you don’t feel connected, you don’t do it. If you don’t do it, somebody else would do it. I don’t regret it (not doing films),” she said.
