Deepika and Vin Diesel arrive in Mumbai to a rousing welcome

Deepika Padukone and Vin Diesel arrived in Mumbai on Thursday morning to a rousing welcome. Women dressed traditionally in red sarees and yellow turbans greeted the ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ co-stars, accompanied by director DJ Caruso, with tilak and aarti amidst the music of dhol and tutari.    

Dressed in white jeans and grey V-neck tee, Diesel seemed very excited as her waved to the huge crowd that had gathered to get a glimpse of the action star. Deepika too looked stylish in black skinny pants and top with a black jacket and stilettos. The duo stepped out of the airport terminal hand-in-hand. They happily posed and were all smiles for the cameras, waving and showing the thumbs-up sign.

After greeting the fans, they took the VIP exit from the airport and headed to St. Regis hotel where they have been put up.
