The 35-year-old Bollywood actress, who is one of the biggest stars in India, will star in and produce an upcoming “cross-cultural romantic comedy” for STXfilms.

Deadline reports that Temple Hill Productions’ Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen are in talks to develop the project. They have helped bring movies like Twilight, Love Simon, and The Fault in Our Stars to the big screen.

“There is a reason Deepika is one of the biggest global stars to come from India. She is enormously talented with an infectious personality and her profile continues to grow as an international superstar,” said Adam Fogelson, chairman, STXfilms Motion Picture Group. “While she has been a phenomenal success in many Eros International films, we are thrilled to be building a romantic comedy with her and our friends at Temple Hill. We believe this project gives us the opportunity to tap into the spirit, voice, characters and vibrant settings of India and New York in ways that made Crazy Rich Asians feel so authentic and fresh.”

Deepika added, “Ka Productions was founded with the aim to develop and produce purposeful content with global appeal. I’m thrilled to be partnering with STXfilms and Temple Hill Productions, who share Ka’s ambition and creative vision and look forward to bringing impactful and dynamic cross-cultural stories to the world.”

Some more cool casting news for Deepika was also announced back in April.
