There are rumors flying around thick and fast that the ‘Piku’ girl might be starring next to the hunk of Hollywood, Vin Diesel as the lead opposite of Xander Cage is the next XXX flick ‘Xander Cage returns’. While earlier there had been reports that Deepika Padukone was offered a role in the Fast and Furious 7 which she turned down due to the extended shooting of the film Happy New Year on which she was working on with Akshay Kumar.
Although none of the actors have confirmed the rumors however Vin Diesel posted a selfie with the Indian actress on twitter, which he mysteriously left un-captioned, fuelling the rumors even further. There has been quite a frenzy among the Indian fans including me as this is her Hollywood debut and that too with Vin Diesel has made it even more exciting.
There has been quite a number of leaks from the extended Bollywood family on twitter. With the memes and the congratulations flowing in. Her co-star from ‘Piku’ Irfan Khan was among the first to congratulate her and let the cat out of the bag. He posted:
“A big congratulation to our favorite #Piku for her smashing #Hollywooddebut with #Vindiesel @DeepikaPadukone”
Later, Deepika also posted a pic of herself with Vin Diesel with the XXX words in the background which pretty much confirmed the rumor.
The cast of Housefull 3 was quick to respond quite wittingly to the post by posting a tweet of their own with a Vin Diesel mannequin or doppelganger which they named Vin Petrol.
Akshay Kumar came out with
“Since Vin Diesel is busy with @deepikapadukone, we at #Housefull3 are making to do with Vin Petrol :P”
Soon after Akshay tweeted, the photo was shared by Ritiesh Deshmukh who further teased by saying that Petrol is costlier than Diesel.
A lot of hopes are riding on Deepika to make this a huge success. The franchise of XXX started in 2002 by Rob Cohen which revolved around an adventure seeker who reluctantly had to work as a spy.
