Deepika Padukone to host grand bash for Vin Diesel


Deepika Padukone is gearing up to turn a gorgeous host to Vin Diesel, her co-star in her debut Hollywood film ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’. Vin will be arriving on his maiden visit to India next week for the film’s promotion.

Deepika had confirmed of his visit on Tuesday with a Hindi tweet which read, “Vin, India is frantically waiting for you. We'll meet soon on January 12 and 13. With lots of love.”

The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actress has special plans to welcome Vin when he lands in Mumbai. A source close to the production team of ‘xXx…’ told Mid-Day, “We plan to receive him at the airport with band-baaja and garland. As the host, Deepika wants nothing short of a perfect welcome, so that Diesel has a warm, enjoyable stay here. He will be introduced to mouth-watering Indian delicacies too."

Deepika will also host a big bash in honour of Vin Diesel, which will be attended by the big-wigs of Bollywood. The source also revealed that they have provided two options for the Hollywood actor’s stay top hotels in Colaba and central Mumbai, saying that the latter option would be ideal since it is closer to the multiplex where the movie will premiere.

An itinerary for the welcoming party has been sent to Vin Diesel for his approval.

Deepika was recently spotted in Los Angeles and, reportedly, she and Vin will start promoting the film in Mexico and then tour a few other places before coming to Mumbai. The action-thriller, which is the third installment of the ‘xXx’ series, will hit Indian theatres on January 14, a week prior to its worldwide release.
