Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone will unveil the FIFA World Cup trophy during the final, which is set to take place later this month. In what could be termed as a new feather in her cap, Deepika will be the first actor of international stature to have been presented with such a rare honor in one of the world’s biggest sporting events.
Deepika will soon fly out to Qatar to participate in the event. Earlier, she represented India at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival as one of the jury members. She made quite a splash at the film carnival with her colourful outfits.
On the work front, Deepika Padukone was last seen in Gehraiyaan. The film was released directly on Amazon Prime Video earlier this year to polarising reviews. However, Deepika’s performance garnered a lot of appreciation.
She is now busy shooting for multilingual science-fiction movie Project K, which stars Prabhas in the lead role. The film is being mounted on a massive budget with director Nag Ashwin at the helm. The movie also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Disha Patani.
Deepika is waiting for the release of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, which is due in cinemas in January next year.

Bollywood actor Siddhant Chaturvedi, who was most recently seen in ‘Phone Bhoot’, will be soon appearing in the official FIFA World Cup anthem. The anthem directed by X is with Lil Baby and will be released during the FIFA World Cup final.
Lil Baby, is an American rapper who has garnered mainstream fame courtesy of his mixtape ‘Perfect Timing’. His debut studio album, ‘Harder Than Ever’, which was released in 2018, delivered the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 single ‘Yes Indeed’ with Drake.
Taking to his Instagram on Saturday, Siddhant, who rose to prominence with ‘Gully Boy’, shared a few pictures from the shoot of the anthem. In the pictures, he can be seen posing with the rapper Lil Baby, wearing a cool red loose T-shirt.
In the caption, he wrote: “FIFA anthem loading… @lilbaby by @directorx.”
On the work front, Siddhant will be next seen in ‘Yudhra’ where he takes on a heavy dose of action and in ‘Kho Gye Hum Kahan’.
