Here's a piece of big news for Deepika Padukone's fans out there! The actress is all set to star in an international cross-culture romantic comedy. The yet-untitled film will be centred around Deepika, who is also producing the film under Ka Productions banner.
The announcement was made today by Adam Fogelson, chairman, STXfilms, a division of Eros STX Global Corporation.
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."
