Deepika Padukone has signed her second Hollywood project. The actress is all set to star in a cross-cultural romantic comedy and has joined hands with Eros STX Global Corporation. Interestingly, Deepika will also be producing the movie under her Ka Productions banner.
Speaking about the association, Adam Fogelson, chairman, STXfilms Motion Picture Group, said in a statement, “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.”
In a statement, Deepika shared her thoughts, “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.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Deepika Padukone has a slew of films lined up under her belt. She will be seen in ‘Pathan’ opposite Shah Rukh Khan and ‘Fighter’ with Hrithik Roshan.
