Deepika Padukone might be currently filming her maiden Hollywood project 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' in the US, but she has also been hearing out a few Hindi film scripts. We hear she was recently offered two Bollywood projects over which she has been racking her brain. Reason? One project features alleged beau Ranveer Singh while the other has her ex Ranbir Kapoor, and she has dates for just one film at the moment.

A source says, "When Deepika recently flew in to Mumbai for a few days, she met Ranbir to discuss a project. She was also in talks with another filmmaker keen to cast her and Ranveer in his next. However, due to her hectic schedule, she will only be able to take up one film."
We hear the actress will have to spend quite a few months abroad to complete her Hollywood film with Vin Diesel and only then will she be able to allot dates for her next Bollywood project.
Deepika Padukone's spokesperson denies the story, saying: "Deepika doesn't ever talk about the projects she has been approached for, so cannot comment." However, a source close to the actress confirms she has been offered two films, one with her ex and the other with her current flame. "Deepika liked both the scripts, but she is unable to make up her mind about the one that she should take up. It is a difficult decision since both are big banner projects," adds the source.
Reportedly, Deepika Padukone has also been approached to star in Kabir Khan's next starring Salman Khan, though there is no official confirmation on the same.
