From going on date nights with Ranveer Singh to partying hard with her gang, Deepika Padukone has been making headlines for all the right reasons these days. She is super busy with next release Padmavati. And if rumors are to be believed, she has missed out on a meaty role in a Hollywood film because of her packed schedule.
According to the reports published by a leading daily, Deepika has been avoiding signing any films and seems completely dedicated to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. The reports also say that a big studio from Hollywood approached her for a role as one of the leads in a film with an ensemble cast. However, she had to say a no to the offer despite its relevance. Deepika made an impressive Hollywood debut with xXx: Return of Xander Cage opposite Vin Diesel.
A source also informed the leading daily, “Deepika was excited about the opportunity of working with the studio and the role that they offered. It would have given her another chance to showcase her acting talent, this time in romantic-drama film.”
“She had to let go of the offer since the producers wanted to start filming this year and start workshops for the actors from August onwards. Since Deep is still neck deep into Padmavati, she wouldn’t have been able to take out time and therefore gave it a pass,” the source added.
The source also revealed that Deepika does not regret the unfortunate timing of the project. “Not at all. She has full faith in Padmavati and Bollywood is her priority. In such a scenario it is a no-brainer that she has chosen and will always choose Bollywood over Hollywood,” said the source.
Deepika will be seen in Padmavati, a period drama, along with Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. The film is set to hit the theatres on November 23.
