Deepika Padukone will star in an upcoming international cross-cultural romantic comedy. The as-yet-untitled film is developed by STXfilms and Deepika's own Ka Productions. It marks her second international venture after XXX: The Return of Xander Cage (2017).
"Ka Productions was founded with the aim to develop and produce purposeful content with global appeal," Deepika said in a statement.
"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."
Adam Fogelson, the chairman of STXfilms Motion Picture Group, 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.”
Deepika's last release was Chhapaak in 2020. She is presently working on Pathan co-starring Shah Rukh Khan. Her other upcoming releases including 83, Shakun Batra's next, and a Nag Ashwin collab.
