Deepika's fresh look was very much appreciated in
Cocktail. She has maintained herself, but she does not
believe much in the size-zero concept. Talking about her figure,
Dips said, "I feel size zero does not matter.. fitness and health
should come first. I know people who are heavy but have great
stamina. There is nothing wrong being size zero as long as it is a
healthy size zero."
Shankar's next movie I is a romantic-thriller, which is
produced by Aascar Ravichandran. The makers wanted actress Samantha
to play the lead role, but she walked out of the project due to
date issues. Later, they have reportedly roped in actress Amy
Jackson to feature alongside Vikram in the movie.
