Deepika Padukone invited Vin Diesel to India for xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage promotions, earlier this month. Her Happy New Year co-star Sonu Sood, who is featuring with Jackie Chan in Indo-Chinese film Kung Fu Yoga, followed suit and is all set to host the Chinese star in India. Sonu Sood, 43, also has some special plans for Mr Chan, who reportedly arrives in India today. Sonu is planning to introduce Mr Chan to his Dabangg co-star Salman Khan, as he said in a video posted on Twitter last week. "Namaste Salman, I'm going to see you in India with my brother (pointing at Sonu Sood)," said Jackie Chan, 62, in the video. Sonu arrived in India a few days back after promoting the film abroad.
