Deepika Padukone who made her international debut with 2017’s xXx: The Return of Xander Cage opposite Vin Diesel has signed her second Hollywood film. Being developed by STXFilms the movie is a cross-cultural rom-com. Deepika will also be co-producing the film under Ka Productions.
“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,” Deepika was quoted saying.
Sharing the news about the collaboration STXFilms chairman Adam Fogelson said “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.”
