Deepika Padukone Upcoming Movies Include Cross-Cultural Rom-Com
Deepika has signed her second Hollywood project after XXX Return of Xandar Cage. She will be seen in a sweeping cross-cultural rom-com.
Actress Deepika Padukone will feature in another Hollywood flick which is a cross-cultural comedy movie. The movie is produced by Deepika Padukone while developed by STX Films. The project was announced by Adam Fogelson, chairman, STXfilms Motion Picture Group, in a statement.
The studio is also in negotiations with Temple Hill Productions Wyck Godfrey and producer Marty Bowen, known for films such as ‘The Fault in Our Stars, the ‘Twilight’ franchise, ‘Love, Simon’, to develop the project. Rumors say the movie revolves around Deepika Padukone’s character.
In the statement, Fogelson called Padukone “one of the biggest global stars to come from India”. Deepika has already made her Hollywood debut with “XXX: Return of Xander Cage” in 2017, and she too has grown as an international superstar.

“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,” Fogelson added.
Padukone said the aim of her production house is to back meaningful stories with global appeal and the upcoming project aligned with that thought. However, she has mentioned several times in her interviews that she wanted to be part of rom-com.
“I’m thrilled to be partnering with STXfilms and Temple Hill Productions, that share Ka’s ambition and creative vision and look forward to bringing impactful and dynamic cross-cultural stories to the world,” Deepika added.
Last year’s acclaimed drama “Chhapaak” marked the first film of Ka Productions, which has also backed films like the upcoming Kabir Khan directorial “83” and the forthcoming Hindi adaptation of the Hollywood movie “The Intern”.
