|The sensational Deepika Padukone is spreading her wings, and Hollywood seems to be her next stop. If the latest reports are to be believed, the actress has bagged the Hollywood actioner Fast & Furious 7.
Deepika auditioned for the role a few weeks back, claim sources. However, she was not the only one. It’s learnt that the film’s casting agent Andrew Webster was in talks with several other actresses and models from India, and the likes of Kangna Ranaut and Chitrangada Singh also screen-tested for the seventh installment of the hit franchise.
Is it the mounting popularity of Deepika Padukone in Bollywood that has helped her land the Hollywood film? As per reports, the casting agents, during their talent hunt in India, asked for someone “slender and statuesque”. Thus, who else than Deepika to fit the bill?
