The Happy New Year star told news agency IANS that she's proud to represent India in Hollywood and that she's sure "the content of the film will entertain all." At an event on Sunday, Deepika told media: "I want to be known as a good person and an actor. That is more important to me. But I feel very proud that I get to represent my country (in Hollywood). I am very excited for this action franchise and also very sure that the content of the film will entertain all," reports IANS.
"There is a lot of action and adventure in the film which we haven't seen in Indian movies before. I am very excited that we will be presenting the movie here," she added.

But that's okay. I am extremely fond of Katrina and Anushka professionally and personally. I wish them all the best," reports IANS. Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma recently featured on an episode of filmmaker Karan Johar's chat show Koffee With Karan and Deepika was mentioned.
After xXx 3, Deepika will be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's historical drama Padmavati The film also stars her Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani co-star Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
After all this hard work, Deepika told IANS her new resolution is to be able to spend more time with her family. "My resolution for the New Year is to spend maximum time with my family. I miss my family a lot," she said.
