Mumbai/ Los Angeles: Bollywood star Deepika Padukone seems to be on a roll. After bagging Van Diesel’s ‘XXX- The Retun of Xander Cage’, the actress is eyeing a role in Tom Cruise’s ‘The Mummy’ and recently auctioned for it. 
 
If rumours are to be believed, the dusky siren has auditioned for a pivotal role in the movie. However, the actress is yet to hear back from the casting directors of the film. 
 
As per sources, the casting directors are currently looking to explore more options. But even if Deepika fails to make the cut, the very fact that she was asked to audition is a big achievement in itself. 
 
‘The Mummy’ is the remake of 90s popular franchise starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weiz. Tom Cruise will be seen playing the role of a navy seal officer in the movie, while Sofia Boutella will play the role of main antagonist.
