Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone are the two shining names in our film fraternity at the moment. The two divas have taken India to the global platform with their Hollywood sojourn. While Priyanka is doing her ABC TV series Quantico and will make her Hollywood debut in Baywatch later this year; Deepika has already shown us her talents via her debut in Hollywood with xXx: Return of Xander Cage. But it seems Deepika is not ready to rest on her past laurels. The Bajirao Mastani actor is all set to star in yet another international project.
According to The Indian Express, the Bang Bang director, Siddharth Anand’s upcoming venture is an Indo-Chinese project and the latest buzz is that Deepika is being considered to play the female lead!
The film is said to star Mermaid fame Chinese actor Deng Chao. A report by Filmfare quotes Sidharth as saying, “Yes, it’s a cross-cultural romance set in Beijing. I’m excited to explore and showcase another culture through this film. Our Chinese producers have suggested Deng Chao’s name but we will take a final call when I visit China.”
Siddharth also added, “The film will have an A-list actress who already has an international presence, so it could possibly be one of them.” Makes us wonder who it might be?
According to the latest reports, Deepika has beaten Priyanka Chopra in the race and has bagged Siddharth’s movie as her second international project.The Indo-Chinese project is tentatively called Love in Beijing and is apparently a love story between an Indian girl and a Chinese man.
Deepika was also spotted attending the Michael Kors New York Fashion Show. Clad in a navy dress, with minimal make-up, Deepika looked mesmerising and a half.
While Priyanka is busy with her American TV series, Quantico and her debut Hollywood movie, Baywatch, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, Deepika, is currently busy with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming project, Padmavati, which stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
