Deepika Padukone to play the lead in a cross-cultural romantic comedy by STXfilms:
Deepika Padukone has joined the STXfilms, a division of Eros STX Global Corporation, for a cross-cultural romantic comedy. She will also be producing this venture under her Ka Productions banner. The announcement was made on Monday by STXFilms chairman Adam Fogelson.
Commenting on this, she said: “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.”
“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,” Adam Fogelson said about the project.
Right now Deepika is busy shooting for Pathan in which she will be sharing the screen space with Shah Rukh Khan. The actress will also be seen in Shakun Batra’s next with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday. She also has ‘Fighter’ with Hrithik Roshan, Nag Ashwin’s next with Prabhas, and ‘The Intern’ remake co-starring Amitabh Bachchan. Deepika is also currently awaiting the release of her next home production venture ’83,
