After impressing fans and critics with her Hollywood debut xXx: Return of the Xander Cage, Bollywood star Deepika Padukone is said to have landed yet another challenging role.

Reports claim that makers of Badlapur 2 may have finalised Deepika as the lead, instead of Varun Dhawan, who did the original.

Producer Dinesh Vijan has had Deepika appear in all of his films till date and he seems to have decided that Deepika would be the protagonist in a sequel to the 2013 thriller, a DNA report said.

“A sequel to Badlapur, with a female protagonist and a completely new cast, is being planned. Dinesh has bounced the idea off to Deepika and she has loved it. It’s a character-driven role, just like Varun’s was in Badlapur. The script isn’t ready yet and once that’s done, the producer will give the actress a full narration and get her dates blocked for the film,” it quoted a source as saying.
