Deepika Padukone new film: Why xXx beauty is not appearing in major film | Films | Entertainment


Deepika Padukone is a darling of the silver screen, known worldwide for her Bollywood roles before blasting onto the Hollywood stage with her role in xXx: Return of Xander Cage. Fans are desperate for the xXx franchise to continue, but until then Deepika has other roles in her roster. But one film she was expected to make may sadly pass her by in favour of another star.

Deepika Padukone was expected to perform in the highly anticipated remake of Satte Pe Satta, a Hindi action comes film from 1982.

The story is similar to that of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, but with an updated setting away from American frontier days.

The sequel, which will see Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty collaborate for the first time, was announced with Hrithik Roshan taking on the lead role of Ravi, held by Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan.

With this, Deepika was expected to play Indu, the leading lady who is tricked into marrying Ravi after he swears he only has one younger brother, when he in fact has six brothers, all of which are uncouth and uneducated.

However, reports have suggested Deepika, who was originally considered for the role based on her likeness to its original star Hema Malini, may have lost out on this role to Anushka Sharma.

When these reports were but to Hrithik Roshan, he refused to confirm whether it would be Deepika or Anushka performing opposite him.

He told Times Now: “No. I don’t think you should go by news like that.

“Until I say what my next film is, I don’t think you should… Like I said, let me first look at which films I should do next. I will let you know.”

Anushka is a similar age to Deepika and has also appeared in a number of Bollywood movies, though not collaborated with Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan as much as Deepika.

But Deepika is busy enough at present, with two films expected to come out next year- Chhapaak and 83 – the latter of which stars her husband Ranveer Singh.

Is Deepika Padukone starring in xXx 4?

While no news on the production of the next xXx film has been released, director DJ Caruso confirmed on Twitter all the major cast would be back for the fourth instalment of the franchise.

In xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Deepika played Serena Unger, who supports Xiang (Donnie Yen) in the team trying to secure Pandora’s Box.

But Deepika’s character was up against some tough competition to try and retrieve the device, with stars such as Ruby Rose, Kris Wu ad Nina Dobrev in the team supporting Cage to try and complete their mission for the CIA and xXx programme.

According to Deadline, Jay Chou and Zoe Zhang are also in the cast, but it looks as though xXx 4 may be a long way in the future.
