We’ve got some news on Deepika Padukone from across the shore – about her Hollywood endeavours, to be precise.
A Bollywood news site reported that the xXx actress auditioned for a pivotal role – that of an Egyptian girl – in Tom Cruise’s The Mummy sometime last month in Los Angeles. Dippy has since been waiting for a revert- but none yet in sight.
A little more digging around and we heard that the casting directors of The Mummy have now been looking at other prospects for the role in question.
Have Deepika’s efforts in this regard gone up in smoke?
A source close to the project says, “They are looking at other options. Even if Deepika doesn’t make the cut, the very fact that she was in the running for an important role in a Tom Cruise starrer is quite a high in itself.”
