Will Deepika Padukone pursuing roles in Hollywood result in more visibility for Bollywood in the West?

Deepika Padukone recently signed with one of Hollywood’s biggest talent agencies! One of our most coveted actresses in Bollywood is looking to continue her career in the West. This is very big news, and I am personally thrilled for her. Deepika has already dipped her toes in Hollywood.

She filmed the movie “XXX: Return of Xander Cage” in 2017, but then she came back to Bollywood to release movies such as “Padmaavat” and “Chhapaak”. If history serves as an example, I feel confident that she won’t leave her Bollywood roots behind. That being said, I am excited by all of the possibilities. Not only could it mean seeing Deepika Padukone in more diverse roles, but it could also mean more exposure for the Bollywood community in the West.

When Priyanka Chopra started pursuing work in Hollywood, she became a global name. Priyanka’s name was suddenly a name that everyone would recognize as that “Indian chick who came from Bollywood”. But what if that was only the beginning? With Deepika looking to extend herself to Hollywood, it could mean more global interest and recognition for Bollywood. Deepika could become the next big wave in globalizing what is already such a big industry. Suddenly, people in the West would know not only Priyanka’s name, but also Deepika’s, which could in turn spark more interest in other Bollywood celebrities. It is in my opinion that the kind of recognition and awareness to Bollywood that this could create would be enormous, and I am excited by the possibilities.

We could get more Indian related content in Hollywood and more job opportunities for other Indian artists. Not to mention cultural awareness. The possibilities are endless! What do you think? Will Deepika Padukone pursuing roles in Hollywood result in more visibility for Bollywood in the West?
