A top actress donning a two piece to justify her character never fails to make news and is usually great publicity for any film with filmmakers going all out to make as much of a fuss about it as possible. It seems to��be happening again and this time the actress is question is Deepika Padukone for her upcoming film, ‘Cocktail’.

Bollywood Hungama reports that Padukone (who�۪s earlier donned a bikini in ��Housefull�۪ (2010) albeit with a sarong), will be flaunting her slender frame in a red hot bikini in the upcoming film ��Cocktail�۪, which sees her opposite Saif Ali Khan.

��Cocktail�۪ is written by Imtiaz Ali and directed by Homi Adajania and sees��Padukone with��Khan for the third time after ��Love Aaj Kal�۪ (2009) and ��Aarakshan�۪ (2011). It also stars Diana Penty and Randeep Hooda in key roles.
