Deepika Padukone’s debut Hollywood film turned out to be an average fare, but her skills seemed to have impressed director DJ Caruso, who confirmed her presence in Vin Diesel’s xXx 4.
Deepika and Vin Diesel’s chemistry was talk of the town, close to the release of xXx: Return of Xander Cage. But many were wondering if Deepika would feature in the sequel of the franchise.
However, fans would be happy to know that the director confirmed that all the actors will come back together in the next film.
So get ready to see some more action by Deepika.
All coming back

Iranian director Majid Majidi screen tests Deepika for a possible role
Acclaimed Iranian director Majid Majidi shoots Deepika Padukone for a secret project. Deepika Padukone was seen in a not-so-glamorous avatar, and the scenes were shot in Dharavi, Mumbai.
Deepika Padukone is among the top actresses in Bollywood, and will soon also be seen in a Hollywood film. And these accomplishments seem to have opened the door of global cinema for Deepika.
Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi who will be starting his first Indian film in English (titled Floating Gardens) is keen to get Deepika on-board. The director, known for his meticulous eye, however tests potential actors before signing them (however big the star). And considering Majid Majidi’s reputation as a filmmaker, Deepika did agree for the test.
It came as a real surprise to many to see Deepika in a rugged look recently, wearing over-sized red kurta and green salwar, and shooting in Dharavi (the biggest slums in Asia). However, soon it dawned that Deepika was shooting for Iranian director (winner of numerous international awards and director of award-winning films such as Children of Heaven, The Color of Paradise and Muhammad).
