Deepika Padukone has teamed up with Eros STX Global Corporation’s STXfilms for a cross-cultural love comedy. Under her Ka Productions company, she will also be producing this project.
Deepika shared in a statement, “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.”
Speaking about the association, Adam Fogelson, chairman, STXfilms Motion Picture Group, 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.”
The studio is also in talks to develop the film alongside Temple Hill Productions’ Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars, “Love, Simon”).
Deepika Padukone will star alongside Siddhant Chautrvedi and Ananya Panday in Shakun Batra’s upcoming film. She also has Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Fighter,’ Nag Ashwin’s next with Prabhas, and Amitabh Bachchan’s version of ‘The Intern.’
