Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty's spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar has dismissed rumours of the actress being part of international film Babel opposite Hollywood heart-throb Brad Pitt and actress Cate Blanchett.

"Shilpa has not signed any international film as yet. Soon after returning from her vacation in New York, she got busy at Mehboob Studio in Mumbai, shooting a song for Anil Sharma's Apne where she is opposite Sunny Deol; while her nationwide 'Romanov' ad campaign will start anytime now," he informed.

The rumour about Babel filmed by the Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu originated when the reputed international website (International Movie Data Base) incorrectly listed Shilpa's name in the venture's cast. A number of other websites also indicated that Shilpa played the role of an Indian girl Sameera Sehgal, the spokesperson said.

Denying knowledge of who might have been behind this mischief, Bhagwagar added that he has written to imdb.
