Proud Ranveer cheers for ladylove Deepika at ‘xXx…’ premiere


Deepika Padukone’s alleged beau Ranveer Singh was all praise for the actress at the Indian premiere of her Hollywood debut film ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’. The ‘Befikre’ actor said he was proud that Deepika is representing the country internationally.

Deepika, along with her ‘xXx…’ co-star Vin Diesel and director DJ Caruso, landed in Mumbai on Thursday morning, after kick-starting the worldwide promotions of the film in Mexico earlier last week. The premiere was held in the evening at a grand event at Mumbai’s Pheonix Mills. It was attended by Bollywood bigshots like Karan Johar, Shahid Kapoor, Irrfan Khan among others, and of course, Ranveer who has always supported his ladylove and her films.

Talking to reporters, Ranveer said. “It is a proud moment for me. I am very excited about the night. It is a big Hollywood film, we have some special guests in the city. It is the premiere of ‘xXx’, starring Deepika, who is a special co-actor of mine and I am looking forward to watching the movie."

"Deepika is a gifted actor and an amazing movie star, someone whom I really admire. I am extremely proud of her," Ranveer added.

Asked about his thoughts on Deepika’s on-screen equation with Hollywood action star Vin Diesel, Ranveer said, "The chemistry looks good in the promos, but rest I can only say after watching the movie."

‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ is the third instalment in the action series ‘xXx’ which first released in 2002. The film also stars Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose and Samuel L Jackson, and is set to hit screens tomorrow, a week before its release in the US.
