"I’m happy for her if it’s true!"
It is rumoured that Deepika Padukone has secured a new Hollywood venture, reportedly joining the cast of the third season of the highly acclaimed series The White Lotus.
Speculations are circulating about Deepika’s involvement in the upcoming season of the well-received show.
In the midst of these speculations, a screenshot surfaced on Reddit, showcasing activity on her mother-in-law Anju Bhavnani’s X account.
The account appeared to have liked three posts related to Deepika’s rumoured participation in the show.
The post gained rapid traction and went viral on the microblogging site.
One person wrote: “I’m happy for her if it’s true!”
Another said: “My takeaway is how supportive her MIL is. Not everyone is lucky to get such in-laws.”
A third asked: “Could it be true then? She could have a tiny role?”
However, some believe that if the rumour is true, Deepika would only have a small role in the show.
One person who echoed that sentiment wrote:
“Why is she only acting in ‘tiny roles’ or cameos? She is such a good actress and I would love to see more of her on-screen acting.”
Another agreed: “What’s the big deal if she has some small role in a Hollywood TV show?”
Others believed that the speculation was bogus, with one commenting:
“Well I know this is fake news but all HBO shows go through a rigorous audition process and I am 100% sure if she did it she would have failed the audition like she has been failing for multiple Hollywood projects that her agency is pushing her name for.
“Her PR won’t let that out.”
Beginning in 2021, The White Lotus follows the guests and employees of the fictional White Lotus resort chain, whose interactions are affected by their various psychosocial dysfunctions.
The likes of Jennifer Coolidge, Sydney Sweeney and Theo James have featured in the anthology series.
A third season is scheduled to premiere in 2025.
Although an official statement from Deepika and her team regarding The White Lotus has not been released, the actress is set to appear in Siddharth Anand’s Fighter alongside Hrithik Roshan.
In this aerial action film by Siddharth Anand, Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone take on the roles of Airforce Officers.
The movie promises a thrilling action spectacle never before witnessed on the big screen, featuring Top Gun-style aerial sequences with Deepika and Hrithik in their aircraft.
Anticipation for the film is soaring, with fans eagerly awaiting the on-screen chemistry between Hrithik and Deepika in this unique pairing.
Anil Kapoor, Sanjeeda Sheikh and Karan Singh Grover also play pivotal roles in the film.
The scheduled release date is January 25, 2024.
