Deepika Padukone has become a hot name in Hollywood after the super success of xXx: Return Of Xander Cage, her action flick with Vin Diesel.

Following the Rs 2,200 crore blockbuster, there were reports that Diesel had taken her under his wings and is counselling on her career in the West. That also fuelled rumours that Diesel will again be seen in her next Hollywood projects.

Well, Padukone has denied all these rumours now. Deccan Chronicle quoted her saying, “No, nothing happening in Hollywood as yet. Would let you know for sure. But yes, a lot of films coming on way and I’m happy.”

She is currently shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati which also features Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. The film had its run-in with the Rajput Karni Sena in Jaipur and its shooting is halted since then.

“Sanjay Leela Bhansali is someone who lives for cinema and I’ve never met anyone more passionate,” Deepika said.

“I know for a fact that he will take everything in a positive way and pour it back into the movie. He’s here to tell a story through his film and glorify Padmavati,” she explained.
