xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage: Deepika Padukone, Vin Diesel in India

Highlights

  • A premiere of the film was held in Mumbai last evening
  • Diesel won hearts by dancing to Deepika's Lungi Dance
  • In between, Deepika and Vin addressed the press
The xXx-fest in India has revealed at least this - Vin Diesel thinks the world of Deepika Padukone, who makes her debut opposite him in xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage. The 49-year-old Hollywood actor, reprising the role that first made him a major star, is on a two-day trip to India with Deepika and their director DJ Caruso. The trio are promoting xXx 3 which releases here tomorrow and next week globally. Vin, Deepika and Mr Caruso exited their plane yesterday to a massive Bollywood-style welcome with dance, dhol and tika. A premiere of the film was held in Mumbai last evening where Vin Diesel won hearts by dancing to Deepika's Chennai Express hit Lungi Dance - wearing a lungi, no less. In between, they addressed the press and Vin, who greeted his heroine with a kiss, waxed eloquent about Deepika Padukone, 31.
Here are five quotes:
"I was waiting for an opportunity to come to India. It was this queen here, this angel (who made it happen)"

Deepika Padukone stars as Serena Unger in xXx 3

"Her commitment (to xXx 3 character Serena) was apparent from the beginning. She made us feel like she would go to all lengths to personify this daredevil character. It wasn't just beauty and grace but ability to commit to action."

Deepika Padukone, who plays the very lethal special operative Serena Unger in xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage, repaid her co-star's compliments by saying she was 'speechless' when she first met him and described him as a 'teddy bear.'
Both Vin and Deepika attended the press conference wearing Indian designers - he in a black outfit by Shantanu and Nikhil that seemed very suited to Xander Cage (a former extreme athlete who is now a government agent), she in a beaded and fringed Sabyasachi dress.
 

xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage premiered in Mexico and London before Mumbai. The cast includes Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose, Samuel L Jackson and Tony Jaa. India will watch the film tomorrow, the rest of the world on January 19.
