Bollywood star Deepika Padukone will make her first appearance in the Hollywood film “XXX: The return of Xanders cage” which is set to release in January 2017, where she will be cast alongside Hollywood sensation Vin Diesel.
In recent reviews, the movie has received a warm response and the Bollywood actress seems to be looking forward to her Hollywood acting debut.
The actress recently commented on her upcoming debut film, “The world is waking up to new talent. Having said that, it is all about whether an actor suits a role or not. An actor should be cast in a movie only if his or her talent brings something unique to the table. I don’t think an actor’s religion, gender, or the region he or she belongs to, should be the reason to sign him or her for a film,” she said.
The movie revolves around the character Xander Cage (Vin Diesel), a government operative, who will race against time itself in order to recover a weapon of destruction known as “Pandoras Box”.
At the initial release of the first installment of the series, Vin Diesel had made his debut but he failed to be part of the second installment. However, he has agreed to participate in the third part of the franchise, starring alongside Deepika who will play the role of “Serena Unger”.
Regarding her role, Deepika had to comment that working in Hollywood “hasn’t been easy” when she said, “Initially, I didn’t feel like I was ready to take up an international project. I was offered films in the past too, but they just didn’t feel right. I have always followed my heart and my instinct,” she stated.
Deepika also revealed that initially, she feared whether or not she would be able to do justice to the character of Serena Unger.
