A story published in a tabloid suggesting that Shilpa Shetty is upset with the Deols - Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby - for not allowing her to watch the premiere of Apne with them has Shilpa astounded.

"On the contrary I'm more miffed with this fabrication than anything the Deols did or didn't do. I love the Deols, specially Dharamji, to death," Shilpa told IANS from Paris.

"Why would they treat me badly? And why would I take offence about the seating arrangement? The truth is Shamita and I had to attend a family function at night. We thought we'd attend the Apne premiere and then go to the function. But the screening started very late, so we just showed our faces and had to leave. That's it."

"The next day, on Friday, I had a special screening of Apne for my family and friends."

Shilpa says such rumours have been doing the rounds since she started working in Apne.

"Throughout the making of Apne we had so much fun. I knew I didn't have an author-backed role. But just the pleasure of being in the same screen space as Dharamji, Sunny and Bobby made me very excited. If Anil Sharma makes Apne 2, I want to be a part of it also."

The film, which hit the theatres on June 29, has been very well received in India and overseas.
