Deepika Padukone has said that it would be interesting to play an Avenger in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but the character has to be of Indian origin.

Deepika was recently in London to unveil her wax statue at Madame Tussauds, where talked to and said that the world is ready to witness a superhero story that originates from India.

On being asked if she would like to be a part of MCU, Deepika replied, “Yeah, of course. Why not? I mean I’d say Indian origin. So whether it’s Marvel or whether it’s Avengers, or you know, any of these iconic characters that we’ve seen in the cinema, I think it would be very interesting. And I think the world is ready for it to see one of these superheroes, one that originates from India. I believe it will happen soon. I know it will.”

The unveiling of the wax statue was streamed live on Instagram. Hubby Ranveer can be seen near the wax figure looking at the statue with admiration.
