Hollywood isn’t really a new domain for our Bollywood stars. Many have been shuttling from US to India handling work in both the countries. Deepika Padukone who will be seen in the XXX franchise film recently said that she hopes many more A-listers from India would take the plunge in the west.

At the IIFA awards, when Deepika was asked if more Bollywood stars should try their luck in Hollywood now, Deepika said, “I hope so, but I also feel different things excite different people. I have been offered roles in the past itself but I don’t think I was ready and I don’t think I was excited enough.”

“As an actor I don’t think I was ready for the challenge before. You have to look everything that you get as an opportunity. There is no role that’s too small or big. It is all about what you make of the opportunity,” said Deepika at the press conference.

We also have Priyanka Chopra who is a central character in an American soap QUANTICO and she has a film with Dwayne Johnson coming up. BAYWATCH the film will feature, Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Priyanka Chopra who plays a negative role in the film.
