Actor Deepika Padukone has signed her second Hollywood movie which is going to be a cross-cultural extravaganza centred around her. The romantic comedy will be produced by STXfilms, a division of Eros STX Global Corporation and Deepika’s own Ka Productions banner.
“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 Padmaavat actress said in a statement.
“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,” added Adam Fogelson, chairman, STXfilms Motion Picture Group.
