Deepika Padukone’s Hollywood debut film ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’, which was supposed to release on January 20, will hit theatres in India a whole one week ahead, on January 14.

Deepika herself announced the news on her Twitter handle today. "Thrilled to announce that 'XXX: Return of Xander Cage' will release in India first! Before anywhere else in the world! January 14."

Deepika plays the role of Serena Unger, a member of Xander Cage’s gang, in the action-packed film, which features Hollywood actor Vin Diesel in the lead role of Xander Cage. The movie is the third in the series ‘xXx’ which first released in 2002. The second film titled ‘xXx: State of the Union’ released in 2005, but it didn’t feature Vin Diesel.
