New Delhi, Dec 14 (IANS) First, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and now his teammate Yuvraj Singh. Budding actress Deepika Padukone is quite fed up and says reports about her engagement with Yuvraj Singh are not true at all.

'Please...this is the strangest thing I have heard, so far,' said a visibly disturbed Deepika.

The actress was Thursday evening declared the new brand ambassador of Swiss watch brand Tissot.

Asked how endorsements work for actors, she said: 'It works both ways. I mean celebrities connect the brand to the audience and the label connects them to the viewers, making them more popular.'

Deepika, who is the daughter of former world badminton champion Prakash Padukone, said sports works to de-stress her: 'I am very closely associated with sports. I have played games like badminton, basketball, tennis, throwball and baseball.'

'My favourite sport is swimming however, any type of sport de-stresses me. It takes my mind off work and makes me feel relaxed,' Padukone told IANS.

However, she denies being bogged down by any kind of pressure of meeting expectations while picking up projects or in her upcoming movies.

'No there is no such pressure on me! Dad taught me to enjoy my work and till the time I do so I will face the camera merrily.

'I always wanted to do an action flick and I am luckily doing 'Made In China'. Nikhil Advani is directing the film and I will share screen space with Akshay Kumar.'
