Mumbai, Aug. 1 -- Deepika Padukone is currently shooting on the island of Corsica with Ranbir Kapoor for their next, which is being directed by Imtiaz Ali. The actor was in for a surprise when fans thronged the sets on a regular basis to meet her. "She never expected such fan frenzy in Corsica. Crowds kept gathering around the sets of her film to get a glimpse of her. When she came to know about them, she met a few and got photographs clicked with them," says a source close to the actor. And this frenzy isn't restricted to the sets and her fans.
Apparently, even the local media has gotten in on the act. "As and when Deepika gets time, she heads out to do some sightseeing. Media personnel have clicked her at different locations and printed those images in local publications. In fact, although no photographers are allowed on the sets, they managed to click pictures from a distance," adds the source. The actor's team in India is also getting calls from the French media for interviews.
Deepika's spokesperson confirms the news, saying, "We have been receiving a lot of media requests from local publications in Corsica. Also, she is being approached by a lot of fans for pictures and autographs." Deepika went to Corsica in July, and will wrap up the month-long schedule in the first week of August.
