Deepika Padukone auditions for Tom Cruise starrer ‘The Mummy’


Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is busy shooting for her Hollywood debut ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ opposite Vin Diesel. She will be wrapping up the project this month. In meantime, the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actress is apparently seeking to spread her wings in the West.

According to a report in SpotboyE, Deepika is eying another exciting Hollywood film. The actress reportedly auditioned for an important role of an Egyptian girl in ‘The Mummy’ franchise. The audition for the Tom Cruise starrer took place in Los Angeles in March.

It was probably that time when Deepika’s dinner date with tennis star Novak Djokovic were splashed all across the Internet.  

The actress is waiting to hear from the team of ‘The Mummy’.

Meanwhile, the casting directors of ‘The Mummy’ have apparently been looking at other prospects for the role in question, the report stated.

A source close to the project was quoted as saying, “They are looking at other options. Even if Deepika doesn’t make the cut, the very fact that she was in the running for an important role in a Tom Cruise starrer is quite a high in itself.”

Sometime back, there were reports that Huma Qureshi had also auditioned for the third instalment of the horror-adventure series.
