Deepika Padukone rose to international stardom after her stellar performance in ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ alongside Vin Diesel.
Now, we hear big talk that the actress has secured another Hollywood film and it’s going to be big!
Sourced from a report, Deepika is apparently going to be starring in a cross-cultural romantic comedy. The film is being developed by STXfilms, a division of Eros STX Global Corporations. Adam Fogelson, the chairman of STXfilms, made an official announcement about the same.
The studio is also in negotiations with Temple Hill Productions Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen (of the ‘Twilight’ franchise, ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, ‘Love, Simon’) to develop the film centered around Deepika. Producer Isaac Klausner is overseeing the project for Temple Hill.
Talking about the project, Adam says, “There is a reason Deepika is one of the biggest global stars to come from India. She is enormously talented with an infectious personality and her profile continues to grow as an international superstar. While she has been a phenomenal success in many Eros International films, we are thrilled to be building a romantic comedy with her and our friends at Temple Hill. We believe this project gives us the opportunity to tap into the spirit, voice, characters and vibrant settings of India and New York in ways that made Crazy Rich Asians feel so authentic and fresh.”
Deepika too released a statement saying she’s absolutely thrilled and would love to bring about an ‘impactful and dynamic’ project. “Ka Productions was founded with the aim to develop and produce purposeful content with global appeal. I’m thrilled to be partnering with STXfilms and Temple Hill Productions, who share Ka’s ambition and creative vision and look forward to bringing impactful and dynamic cross-cultural stories to the world,” says DP.
Currently, Deepika is busy shooting her role in Pathan, a film co-starring Shah Rukh Khan in the lead. She then has an upcoming project with Shakun Batra and will also star in the Bollywood remake of the film ‘The Intern’ opposite Amitabh Bachchan.
