Deepika Padukone cast with Vin Diesel in ‘XXX 3’?


The shooting for the third instalment of action franchise ‘XXX’ titled ‘XXX: The Return of Xander Cage’ is set to go on floors from this month. Speculations are rife that Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone will star with Hollywood action star Vin Diesel, the face of ‘XXX’, in the movie.

While there has been no confirmation yet, Deepika had on Friday (December 4) hinted about it by sharing a picture of her with Vin Diesel on her social media account. And now there is another picture shared by the Hollywood star which is an adorable selfie of him with Deepika.

With one more picture of Deepika and Vin Diesel on the social site, it proves that both are up to something. It is expected that Deepika is finally making her Hollywood debut after missing out the chance two years ago.

Deepika was offered to star in the seventh edition of ‘The Fast and Furious’ movies, but she could not do it as she was busy with Bollywood projects ‘Happy New Year’ and Goliyoon Ki Raasleela, Ram-Leela’.

The earlier picture posted by the ‘Chennai Express’ star had Deepika hugging the Hollywood star who has his back to the camera as she looks up from his shoulder. The background has the logo ‘XXX’. She also tagged the picture on Instagram as ‘deepikapadukone @vindiesel’.

Vin Diesel is returning to the cast after a gap of 13 years. He was part of the first film ‘XXX’ in 2002, but was not present in ‘XXX: State of The Union’ which released in 2005.

In the series, Vin Diesel stars as the protagonist Xander Cage, a thrill seeking extreme sports enthusiast, stuntman and rebellious athlete-turned-reluctant spy for the National Security Agency who is sent on one dangerous mission after the other.

‘XXX: The Return of Xander Cage’ will see the protagonist who is assumed dead, return to action for a new, tough assignment with his handler Augustus Gibbons.
