After the release of her first film newcomer Deepika Padukone is on signing spree. Or so we hear. More than signing films she is busy endorsing products. She has officially been signed as the brand ambassador of Levi Strauss Signature.

Deepika agrees that she is getting more endorsement offers after the release of her first film. “Yes it’s true that I have been getting lot of endorsement deals. But I have to be choosy. You should relate to the brand also you should feel for the brand. Every brand has a certain target audience. You have to understand the requirement of the brand and that’s why I am here to endorse the signature.”

Deepika is just one film old and has a huge fan following. What does she feel about her new found stardom? “First of all I don’t think I am a star. I am just one film old and have a long way to go. I don’t think I could’ve asked for a better launch than Om Shanti Om . I just hope that I’ve lived up to everyone’s expectations.”

Post the release of Om Shanti Om Deepika has been getting offers from big production houses. And though there is a lot of buzz about Deepika doing Agent Vinod with Saif Ali Khan and Krissh 2 with Hrithik Roshan, Deepika denies the reports. She says, “As of now I have signed two movies. I’ll be shooting with Ranbir in January for Yash Raj’s next. It will be directed by Sidharth Anad. It’s not titled yet. After that I will be working on Nikhil Advani’s Made In China opposite Akshay Kumar.”

Deepika was in the news for various reasons: Earlier because of her affair with Ranbir Kapoor and then thanks to an alleged romantic liaison with Indian ODI skipper MS Dhoni. When asked how she deals with controversies, she says, “It really doesn’t matter to me. I know what I am all about, and that’s all that matters!”
