Priyanka Chopra or Deepika Padukone is all set to romance Chinese actor Deng Chao. Yes, after Salman Khan who is romancing Chinese actress Zhu Zhu in ‘Tubelight‘ the divas of Bollywood are all set to do the same in an Indo-Chinese production . If things go as planned then Deepika or Priyanka will romance the Chinese star in Siddharth Anand’s next directorial venture.
Director Sidharth Anand is working on his Indo-China production that is tentatively titled as ‘Love in Beijing’. The filmmaker is planning to cast Chinese actor Deng Chao of ‘The Mermaid’ fame in the movie. The film is a cross-cultural love story based on a Chinese man falling in love with an Indian girl.
Siddharth had said that he wants an actress who already has great international presence and appeal. Now there are only two actresses in Bollywood who fall in this category: Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra. Both have made a name for themselves in the West. Both are all set make their respective debuts in Hollywood, ‘xXx: Return Of Xander Cage’ and ‘Baywatch’.
But sources have revealed that the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actress has not been approached for the Indo-Chinese venture. So will it be Priyanka Chopra romancing the Chinese Heartthrob? remains to be seen.
Kabir Khan and Sidharth Anand have been roped in to helm two India-Chinese co-productions backed by Eros International’s franchise feature film studio Trinity Pictures. Kabir Khan’s travel drama “The Zookeeper” (working title) and Anand’s cross-cultural romantic comedy “Love in Beijing” (working title) will be released in 2018.
