Deepika Padukone unveiled her second Hollywood project on Tuesday, an untitled cross-cultural love story that she will produce with STX Films and Temple Hill.

It’s being billed as a romantic comedy set in New York and India, similar to Crazy Rich Asians. Now, we’ve learned that the picture will be made on a $75 million budget.

“The team wants to make a visually appealing cross-cultural romantic comedy and are planning to shoot at virgin locations in parts of New York and India. Padukone aside, they are in conversations with some top actors from the West to come on board the project. The rest of cast, director and shooting timelines will be revealed in the months to follow, however, the studio has estimated the budget of this cross-cultural tale to be in the range of $75 million,” revealed a source close to the development.

The film will be released next year. Deepika’s other projects include director Shakun Batra’s untitled home noir, the espionage thriller Pathan, in which she reunites with Shah Rukh Khan, and the untitled domestic noir of filmmaker Shakun Batra.

Her first collaborations with Hrithik Roshan were in the slice-of-life comedy The Intern, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, and the aerial action thriller Fighter. She also appears in Nag Ashwin’s futuristic sci-fi flick, which also stars Prabhas.
