Deepika Padukone made quite an impressive Hollywood debut with ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ (2017) opposite Vin Diesel. And while her ‘Bajirao Mastani’ (2015) co-star Chopra has been making waves herself by having already signed two more Hollywood films after ‘Baywatch,’ Padukone is busy filming Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ and has no upcoming plans with Hollywood.
Speculations were rife about Padukone having lost out on a large role in a Hollywood project because apparently, the production could not arrive on a conclusion regarding her remuneration. Now, reports suggest that the reason may actually be her shooting schedule for ‘Padmavati,’ reports DNA India.
As per the reports, Padukone was confirmed by a big studio for a major role, as one of the leads in a film with an ensemble cast. But since Padukone has been avoiding signing any more movies due to the delay in ‘Padmavati,’ she had to reluctantly say no to the Hollywood role.
A source was quoted as saying, “Deepika was excited about the opportunity of working with the studio and the role that they offered. It would have given her another chance to showcase her acting talent, this time in romantic-drama film. She had to let go of the offer since the producers wanted to start filming this year and start workshops for the actors from August onwards. Since Deep is still neck deep into Padmavati, she wouldn’t have been able to take out time and therefore gave it a pass.”
