If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I think you’ve found your Bollywood woman for ‘Fast & Furious 7’ Universal….

Sources say that Bollywood star Deepika Padukone may be joining the highly successful Hollywood action franchise ‘The Fast and the Furious‘ as she has already auditioned for its casting director Andrew Webster.  Webster is reportedly looking for a Bollywood sexpot to join the cast as a science and technology expert. Other Bollywood beauties Webster has reached out to include Rekha Rana, Chitrangada Singh, and Kangna Ranaut.

The latest installment in the film series, ‘Fast and Furious 6‘, was also the franchise’s most successful at the box office where it grossed $786.6 million worldwide.  Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Jordanna Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, and Michelle Rodriguez were all in on the car chase scene fun once again in the franchise’s latest incarnation.

Deepika is having a career year as she has starred in Bollywood mega-hits including ‘Chennai Express‘, ‘Race 2‘, and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewwani‘ recently. The 27-year old former model may not have the international name recognition of say a Pryianka Chopra yet, but casting directors looking for hot Bollywood commodities would be foolish not to consider the reigning Bollywood box-office queen.

Deepika may have a tough time fitting another film into her already loaded schedule as she has two films currently in post-production and is shooting another, but we’re sure that she would make time for a Hollywood film franchise that has grossed over $2.3 billion as of August 1, 2013 and is Universal Picture’s biggest franchise of all time.

Fast and the Furious 7‘ already has British action star Jason Statham attached to play the villain and all of the main characters from ‘Fast and the Furious 6‘ will be back in on the action along with Thai martial artist/movie star Tony Jaa and UFC fighter Ronda Rousey added to the fray.  Shooting is set to begin this month with a July 6, 2014 release date on tap.

Let’s hope that Universal gets this one right and introduces Deepika to American audiences on the ever lucrative blockbuster July 4, 2014 weekend in ‘Fast and the Furious 7‘!

As always, we here at World Sanna Khan will let you know if she got the part!! (don’t worry, we’ve got our fingers crossed for you Deepika….)

Shah Rukh Khan’s Latest, ‘Chennai Express’, Breaking Box Office Records

Of course Deepika and SRK are all smiles after ‘Chennai Express’s monster weekend….

Well, it looks like Shah Rukh Khan has done it again as his latest film , ‘Chennai Express‘, is now the fastest Bollywood movie to join the 100 Crore ( $16.36 million) club and the only one to do so in its first weekend in theaters.  SRK’s co-star Deepika Padukone continues to have a career year as this is her third hit of 2013 along with ‘Race 2‘ and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani‘.

When responding to critics who say perhaps this just happens to be Deepika’s charmed year in film she said “If people are saying it’s my year, it depends on my films… I think these things are relative. It feels nice to hear or to read about it. But, more importantly, I have been working really hard. I know I have pushed myself and sacrificed a lot of personal and family time. But in the end if the result is like this, you don’t mind. But, yes, I think success is relative.”

And how did SRK himself feel about the film’s impressive numbers?  Well, he said “It’s just a number but I am happy that it’s done well and it’s after a long time I have done a film that all have watched. I have yet to see the film with the audience but it feels great...” when referring to the historically significant 100 crore mark the film raced past in its first weekend of release.

The film also managed to rake in money in foreign markets outside India, debuting at #13 in the U.S. film market with an impressive 18.35 crores ($2.25 million) take.  Director Rohit Shetty has to be considered one of the hottest Bollywood directors going with the success of ‘Chennai Express‘ hot on the heels of also successful ‘Bol Bachchan‘.

What does Salman Khan, who ever since 2008 usually releases a movie on Eid, think about the abdication of his August movie throne to King Khan?  Although he’s stayed mum in public, Salman has had to deal with numerous production problems on his latest film ranging form a co-star being charged with kidnapping to his own legal woes so seeing his rival do so well can’t sit well with the thespian.  We’ll just have to wait until next year to see if Salman’s 2014 film ‘Mental‘, which has been plagued by these delays during shooting, will return him back to the top of the heap….
