Deepika Padukone returns with "Cocktail" and clarifies that both her character in the forthcoming film and the theme of the movie are different from whatdeepika padukone people saw in her 2009 hit "love Aaj Kal".

The doubts about the similarity between the two films and her character arose after the first promos of "Cocktail" came out! She has teamed up with Ali Khan">Saif Ali Khan in "Cocktail", which is written by Imtiaz Ali and directed by Homi Adajania. Model Diana Penty also features in it.

"The minute people see Saif and me together, they will think about 'Love Aaj Kal'. Yes, of course, Imtiaz has written the script, but it is directed by Homi Adajania who had earlier made 'Being Cyrus'," Deepika told reporters here Wednesday.

"Yes, it is a love story, but it is also about friendship, betrayal, fun and trust. So I think in terms of the film, it is very, very different," she insisted.

The promos show Deepika, who plays Veronica in the film, mouthing some bold dialogues.

She clarified: "I am not the film's writer. The dialogues were written based on the character that I am playing. Veronica is a very confident girl. She is very self-assured."

Why did she she choose to play VeronicaIJ

" 'love Aaj Kal' was a very different role for me. In this film, I was offered both the roles. My producer Dino (Dinesh Vijan) was kind enough to offer me both the roles. He said that you choose which one you want. I took it as a challenge and Imtiaz (Ali) also suggested to me that since Meera from 'love Aaj Kal' is so similar to the other character in the film, it would be interesting for me to play Veronica," said the 26-year-old.

"I am so glad I went with that because when the trailer released two days ago, the response has been fantastic. What people are also reacting to is the fact that they have not seen me play something like this or look like this on-screen," she added.

"Cocktail" is scheduled for a July 13 release.

    Well , may be your characters are not the same but your wooden expressions and poor dialogue delivery will always be the same. Like many of us , even I thought that U had potential , after watching OSO. The fact is that U JUST CAN'T ACT , Deepika! Dead

    Apart from her role in OSO, Deepika has failed to impress me.. she really does not suit in the roles she chooses.. cant act..and cant handle fame

    Deepika - I used to like you but after your useless babbling on KJO show, you made an exit from my list of favs...but anyway, good luck for Cocktail!
