Penelope Cruze is set for the lead role alongside Bollywood co-stars in the English-language film adaptation of Passion India, according to Production Weekly.

Javier Moro's novel ("Indian Passion") was inspired by the true story of Anita Delgado, a 17 year old flamenco dancer from Andalusia who scandalized two countries in the early 1900s when she agreed to marry an Indian maharaja and settle in his native land.

The film is expected to shoot in Spain and India.

Cruz is about to start shooting in Spain on the bullfighter pic Manolete with Adrien Brody.
