Deepika Padukone in a recent interview claimed that she won't collaborate with someone who faced an allegation of sexual misconduct.

A few days back, Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor were photographed outside #MeToo accused director-producer Luv Ranjan’s office, which immediately leads to the speculations that the two stars were in talks to star in one Ranjan’s forthcoming movie.

Shortly after, her fans took to Twitter to show their objection by trending the hashtag #NotMyDeepika, which was quick to find a place on the top trends.

Although the magazine did not mention the name directly, we all could guess that they were talking about director-producer Luv Ranjan who was accused of having sexual harassment by an actress last year. This answer is seemingly a way for the actress to put an end to all these recent speculations and fans are definitely happy to hear her say that.
