- Deepika to co-produce with STXfilms, a division of Eros STX Global Corporations
- She makes her comeback in Hollywood after 4 and a half years
- Her last work was with Vin Diesel in XXX: Return of Xander Cage
Deepika Padukone was last seen in Chhapak in 2020, as producer and actor. But her last Hollywood venture was 4 and a half years back with Vin Diesel. She starred in XXX: Return of Xander Cage and that was her first Hollywood project. Now she is all set to make a comeback with her next Hollywood venture, not only as an actor but also as a co-producer under her banner Ka Productions.
Deepika announced the project on Tuesday. She said in a statement, “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”. The project is said to be a cross-cultural romantic comedy that will mark her Hollywood comeback.
Talking about partnering with Deepika, the chairman of STXfilms 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”.
Apart from the Hollywood project, Deepika also has an interesting lineup of Bollywood projects in the coming years. She will be next seen in ‘Fighter’ with Hrithik Roshan, Shakun Batra’s domestic noir, and ‘Project-K’ that also stars Prabhas in the lead. On the producer’s front, Deepika has announced the Indian adaptation of the international superhit movie ‘The Intern’ that also has her in the lead alongside Amitabh Bachhan.
