Prachi Bhardwaj, New Delhi: Global star Deepika Padukone who has successfully made her way into Hollywood with her debut in 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' opposite Vin Diesel has a bad news for her fans.
The actress who dazzled in her Hollywood debut has reportedly turned down a major Hollywood project and the reason is her commitments. Deepika is currently shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati' which also features Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
Buzz is that Deepika turned down a rather meaty role as the Hollywood producers could not finalise her remittance. However, according to a leading daily, the actress turned down the big project as she is busy shooting for 'Padmavati'.
Reports suggest that Deepika was excited about the opportunity of working with the studio as it would have given her another chance to showcase her acting talent, this time in romantic-drama film. Unfortunately, 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 the actress is still neck deep into 'Padmavati', she wouldn't have been able to take out time and therefore gave it a pass.
As per the reports, Deepika was approached for the lead role in the film but due to constant delay in 'Padmavati' shooting schedule, Deepika reluctantly said no to take up any Hollywood project for some time.
