At least that's what the rumours suggest...
Deepika Padukone is doing a full-on action film in Hollywood, XXX- The Return Of Xander Cage with Vin Diesel. This will mark her debut in the West and we all are looking forward to it. There is a possibility that like Priyanka Chopra, the audience there will warm up to Deepika in a big way as well because the actress is looking fab in whatever grabs we have seen from the sets of the film. We were expecting some more announcements from Hollywood from her end but a piece of news has left us kinda stunned. Reports suggest Deepika Padukone was in the running to play a pivotal part in The Mummy Reboot with Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella but was rejected!
Yes, that's what we hear. An entertainment website revealed that the actress auditioned for the film which has Cruise in the lead and Sofia as the main antagonist. In fact, the makers are also pursuing Gladiator Russell Crowe to give his nod for the film. Deepika auditioned for a role in the film as well but it seems she couldn't make the cut. They are now looking for alternatives. We also heard that Huma Qureshi also auditioned for this film but didn't get any favourable response from the casting agents.
The Mummy Reboot makers don't know who they just rejected. Don't you think so people?
