Deepika slays in black at special ‘xXx’ trailer screening


Deepika Padukone will be the first guest on Salman Khan’s popular reality show ‘Bigg Boss 10’ which kick-starts tomorrow, Sunday. She will launch the trailer of her maiden Hollywood film ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ there.

Ahead of it, Deepika organised a screening of the minute-long trailer, specially cut-out for the Indian audiences, for select media persons in Mumbai. Deepika looked stunning dressed in all black as she played host to the newspersons at the screening. She happily posed for the shutterbugs.

The first trailer that released in July came as a disappointment for the Indian audience, as Deepika was barely in it. But the one screened yesterday showed that the Bollywood babe has a decent part in the hit action franchise film. She was seen doing sliding split, power-packed stunts and romancing Vin Diesel mouthing dialogues like – ‘It's OK if you are a little bad’, according to a report in India Today.

In the film, Deepika plays the role of Serena Unger, a member of Xander Cage’s gang. She is seen speaking in English the way she normally does – in Indian accent. Explaining about it, Deepika said that it was director D.J. Caruso who wanted it to be so. She said, "If my co-stars Tony Jaa (Thailand) and Toni Collette (Australia) can speak English with an accent, then why can't I?"

Deepika also shared her experience of shooting in Hollywood and praised their policies of working only for 12 hours and no work on weekend.
