After ‘XxX’, Deepika Padukone to romance Chiranjeevi


While Priyanka Chopra has come for a short break in India to sign her next Bollywood film in ten days, the ‘Piku’ actress Deepika Padukone has no such plan. The actress, who just wrapped up the shooting of her Hollywood debut ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ might not be seen in a Hindi film next. According to the latest grapevine, Deepika might star in a Telugu film opposite South star Chiranjeevi in the film titled ‘Kattilantodu’.

‘Kattilantodu’ will mark Chiranjeevi’s 150th film and will be directed by VV Vinayak. The movie is said to be a Telugu remake of Vijay-Murugadoss’s ‘Kaththi’ (2014). It is learnt that Deepika Padukone has been approached for the film and she has given her nod.

After a gap of 15 years, Chiranjeevi is returning to a full-fledged cinema with ‘Kattilantodu’.  The film will revolve around the issues of Indian farmers.

After ‘Bajirao Mastani’, Deepika Padukone had not signed any Bollywood film. She got busy with her Hollywood venture. Talks are also on that she will star in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ opposite Ranveer Singh.
