New Delhi: Bollywood diva, Deepika Padukone has always hogged the limelight for choosing films that best suit her and shining bright with its success ratio. However, the industry circles were brimming with hope that the 28-year-old actress might be donning a director's hat in soon, which she has now completely refuted, reportedly.

According to a leading daily, the 'Ram-Leela' actress, who had on a previous occasion expressed her desire of assisting filmmaker Zoya Akhtar on the sets, to understand the craft better has now slammed all such claims. Reports further suggest that Dippy darling has made it clear that she will not be directing film as of now and there are no plans of her starting up a production house too.

Well, her contemporaries such as Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra and the latest one being Kangana Ranaut, who took up a course in script-writing at New York have sort of evolved from being 'just actresses'. But for the 'Chennai Express' star, it seems acting is the only craft that's occupying her mind, for now at least!
