Actress Deepika Padukone is set to make a comeback to the industry of film in the West more than four years after she made her Hollywood debut with XXX: Return Of Xander Cage. There are reports that Deepika Padukone will star in a cross-cultural romantic comedy movie.
The film was produced by STXfilms, Ka Productions, owned by Deepika Padukone, and Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen’s Temple Hill Productions, which previously produced hit films such as ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ and the Twilight series.
Ka Productions was founded with the vision of creating global content for a global audience. The partnership with Temple Hill Productions and STXfilms, who also have a creative vision, is exciting for Deepika Padukone, who believes they can produce cinematic work with impact and relevance,” she said in a statement.
The chairman of STXfilms Motion Picture Group, Adam Fogelson, has also issued a statement. Despite being born in India, Deepika is among the world’s biggest stars. Her reputation as an international superstar continues to grow due to her enormous talent and infectious personality.
Her A-list success in many Eros International films has thrilled us, but we are even more excited to collaborate with her on this romantic comedy. We hope that ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ felt so real and original because we were able to tap into the soul, voice, and energetic settings of India and New York through this project,” he said.
A Hollywood debut was made by her in 2017, when she starred in the fourth film in the ‘XXX’ film franchise alongside Vin Diesel, Ruby Rose, and Nina Dobrev.
