Deepika Padukone will be seen revving it up in Hollywood with Fast and Furious 7. But it’s not just her presence that people will look forward to. The Hollywood money spinner has a loyal audience awaiting the release in July 2014. With bigger names, here’s what one can expect…
MORTAL COMBAT: It would be great to see Deepika (who has tried her hand at action in Chandni Chowk to China) battle it out with Ultimate Fighting Championship Ronda Rousey. A new addition to the series, Ronda is UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, and the first American woman to earn an Olympic medal in Judo at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. Impressive huh?
THE BIG ADDITION: Kurt Russell will join the cast. The shooting will start this month. His role is likely to be expanded further.
ALSO ON THE LIST: Thai martial artist Tony Jaa, best known for his work in Ong-Bak (he starred in three films) will join the cast.
THE THIRD TRILOGY: FF7 also marks the beginning of the new trilogy of the series. In a recent interview, Vin Diesel said, “The stories of 7, 8 and 9 are mapped out in a structure, even if they’re not signed off on. The direction of 7, 8 and 9 is clear.” This means that if her luck holds out, Deepika may get a chance to increase her association with the franchise.
