Bollywood actresses Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are doing really well on professional grounds. Despite enjoying a splendid Bollywood career, the B-town divas are been lauded by Hollywood audience as well.
Last year in October, there were reports that one of the two will be taken on board for an Indo-Chinese film to be directed by Siddharth Anand.
The latest update in this regard is that Deepika is apparently part of Siddharth Anand’s Indo-China love story. It will also star Mermaid fame Chinese actor, Deng Chao, as per Filmfare.
Talking about the project a few months back, Anand had said, “Yes, it’s a cross-cultural romance set in Beijing. I’m excited to explore and showcase another culture through this film. Our Chinese producers have suggested Deng Chao’s name but we will take a final call when I visit China next month.”
The director was asked if he would prefer casting Deepika Padukone or Priyanka Chopra in the movie, he was quick to state that, “The film will have an A-list actress who already has an international presence, so it could possibly be one of them.” However, now it seems that Deepika Padukone has made it.
IANS had reported last year that Kabir Khan and Bang Bang! director Anand have been roped in to helm two Indo-Chinese co-productions backed by Eros International’s franchise feature film studio Trinity Pictures. Anand’s ‘Love in Beijing’ is based on an Indian girl who falls in love with a Chinese man. The cross-cultural romantic comedy ‘Love in Beijing’ (working title) will be released in 2018.
