Our desi beauty Deepika Padukone is more of a stunner than Angelina Jolie, according to Hollywood director Rob Cohen.

Cohen, who has directed films like 'The Fast and the Furious', 'The Witches of Eastwick' and 'Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story', has told a website that Deepika could be the new face of Indian cinema for the world.

"Deepika Padukone is gorgeous and is more beautiful than Angelina Jolie," Cohen is quoted to have said.
In fact, Cohen is learnt to be planning to cast Deepika in his next project which might also star a leading male actor from Bollywood. Negotiations are on, but things haven’t been finalized yet.

According to Cohen, Deepika's “diverse and versatile body of work” makes her one of “the youngest, most gorgeous and most talented super model and actresses to have taken both the cinema and fashion industry by storm”.

Well, to be honest, Deepika is still relatively considered a starter in Bollywood. With just three films to her credit so far, her “body of work” is far from being diverse. But there’s no doubt that the gal is gorgeous and has been one of the top models of India. She’s confident, charming and capable of making a mark in global cinema. Will Rob Cohen give her that break?
