Vin Diesel has got his Xander Cage Returns, the upcoming sequel of XXX franchise, leading lady in Deepika Padukone.

After Priyanka Chopra, looks like it is Deepika Padukone’s turn to leap into international stardom. Hollywood’s Vin Diesel teased his fans on Monday about his leading lady Deepika Padukone in Xander Cage Returns, the upcoming sequel of XXX franchise, by sharing a picture with the Indian beauty on his Instagram. Deepika, 29, had first fuelled speculation about her possible Hollywood debut by sharing a picture with Diesel where she is seen hugging the Hollywood hunk while looking at the camera mysteriously.

There were reports that Deepika had turned down Diesel’s Fast and Furious 7 to accommodate dates for her 2014 release Happy New Year. XXX, a 2002 American action film directed by Rob Cohen, starred Diesel as Xander Cage, a thrill seeking extreme sports enthusiast, stuntman and rebellious athlete-turned- reluctant spy for the national security agency.
