Deepika Padukone returns to the world of Hollywood once again. After the release of XXX: Return of Xander Cage in 2017, Padukone is all set to feature in an upcoming cross-cultural romantic comedy, which is being developed by STXfilms, a division of Eros STX Global Corporations.
On Monday, the Chairman of STX Films, Adam Fogelson, made the announcement. The studio is also trying to negotiate a deal with Temple Hill Productions Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen to develop the
the story around Deepika.
“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 allows us to tap into the spirit, voice, characters and vibrant settings of India and New York in ways that make Crazy Rich Asians feel so authentic and fresh,” Adam Fogelson said about the project.
The actress is also excited about the project and is looking forward to bringing “impactful and dynamic” stories through Ka Productions.
“Ka Productions was founded 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,” Padukone said in a statement.
Deepika is currently busy shooting for Pathan. She will be working with Shah Rukh Khan on this film. Along with that, Padukone will also be seen working with Amitabh Bachchan for the Hindi remake of The Intern.
