Bollywood star Deepika Padukone may star in Tamil director Sundar C’s next multilingual project, titled Sangamithra.
Sundar’s upcoming film is touted to be India’s most expensive film and will reportedly surpass the budget pf Enthiran and Baahubali: The Beginning. Apart from Deepika, the director plans to get top stars form Telugu and Tamil film industries onboard. Deepika, 31, has been offered a leading role in the film.
If the deal materializes, then Sangamithra will be Deepika’s second Tamil film after 2014’s Kochadaiiyaan opposite Rajinikanth. The film directed by Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya was India’ first film made with motion capture technology. The film is produced by Sri Thenandal Films while Oscar-winner A R Rahaman has composed the film’s music. Kamalakannan, who’s worked in Baahubali and Eega, will take care of the film’s special effects.
Deepika is currently busy filming Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period piece Padmavati co-starring Ranveer Singh. She recently wrapped her first Hollywood project xXx3: The Return of Xander Cage co-starring Vin Diesel.
Deepika, who ranked 10th on the Forbes’ list of highest paid actresses, seems to have some plum projects up her sleeve.
