Director Nikhil Advani, who has been shooting with hectic celerity in China for his new action-comedy Chandni Chowk To China, confirms that Deepika Padukone is playing double role in the movie.

"That's right," confirmed Advani. "Deepika is doing a double role in my film."

This would be Deepika's second double role after her debut Om Shanti Om

When quizzed him about the music of the film, Advani told IANS: "While the rest of the score by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, with a little help from Kailash Kher, is completely original, we've used Bappi Lahiri's Bombay se aaya mera dost from the film Aap Ki Khatir. Bappi has reworked and re-sung the song."

Advani's directorial debut Kal Ho Naa Ho was a runaway success at the box office, but his second film Salaam-e-Ishq was letdown.

Chandani Chowk to China is a mega-budget film and is produced by Warner Brothers and Rohan Sippy.
