WEB DESK: Deepika Padukone is on a role! Now days, Deepika Padukone is busy with her Hollywood project XXX: The Return of Xander Cage.

 She has been shooting for the movie in Canada since the past couple of months.  However, it seems that Ms. Padukone is not willing to stop there.

Apparently in March her visit to LA was for the audition for a role in the Tom Cruise starrer, The Mummy.

The website, SpotboyE quoted a source as saying, “They are looking at other options. Even if Deepika doesn’t make the cut, the very fact that she was in the running for an important role in a Tom Cruise starrer is quite a high in itself.”

The Mummy is one of the many remakes planned by Universal Pictures as an effort to create an interconnected universe for their classic monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, the Bride of Frankenstein, and vampire hunter Van Helsing.

Alex Kurtzman is set to direct the The Mummy reboot from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). The film also stars Sofia Boutella of the Kingsman fame.
