Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are in the lime light, because of their respective Hollywood projects. This time the race is about finding the lead female cast for Deng Chao, a Chinese actor.
Bang Bang director Sidharth Anand is ready with a script for his next project titled ‘Love in Beijing’. A story of a Chinese man who falls in love with an Indian girl.
Confirming the same, the director spoke to a leading tabloid,
Yes, it’s a cross-cultural romance set in Beijing. I’m excited to explore and showcase another culture through this film. Our Chinese producers have suggested Deng Chao’s name but we will take a final call when I visit China next month.
So, when the director was asked if he would cast Deepika Padukone or Priyanka Chopra in the movie, he was quick to state that,
The film will have an A-list actress who already has an international presence, so It could possibly be one of them.
Ask him if he has already begun with the script of his movie and he says,
We’ve been working in my office since the last week and should be able to lock the script by December. The Chinese are strong-minded people and its great fun to work with them. I’ve never shot in China before so it’s a blind spot for me. But I will be travelling there next month with the writers for a recce.
Few writers are especially flying down to India to assist the director and Indian team of writers. The actors in the movie will be seen speaking in Mandarin and Hindi, both.
