SRK, Rohit behind my lungi look in `Chennai Express`: Deepika Padukone

New Delhi: Hopefully, Deepika Padukone`s `lungi` and shirt look from `Chennai Express` posters does not spark a trend but it has certainly made everyone do a double take.

The actress reveals that film`s lead actor Shah Rukh Khan and director Rohit Shetty came up with the idea to dress her in a `lungi`.

"That`s something new and I hope it works," says Deepika about her look.

"The idea to wear a `lungi` is not mine actually. It was Shah Rukh and Rohit who came up with it. We had to quickly do a photoshoot because we were losing the light. They were like `Why don`t we give her this `lungi` and make her look modern`. The shirt that I am wearing in the posters also belongs to SRK, only the sunglasses are mine," the actress told reporters.

The potboiler, which reunites Deepika with SRK onscreen after her debut in `Om Shanti Om`, is slated to release this year.

Deepika, fresh from the success of `Race 2`, is looking forward to back-to-back releases this year.

"It has been a good year but my next next six months are very demanding in terms of my schedule. I hope all the hard work pays. I have `Chennai Express` and `Kochadaiyaan` with Rajini (Rajinikanth) sir is also ready for release," says Deepika.

She has two other films --`Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani`, her film will Ranbik Kapoor and Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s `Ram Leela`.

There were reports that she may star in Salman Khan`s `Kick` but the actress denies it.

"That`s all speculation. It probably stems from the fact that I had expressed a desire to work with Salman Khan. Maybe these stories are coming from there. There is nothing concrete on that film yet."
