Bollywood star Deepika Padukone can kick some serious butt. We in India have known it for quite some time and now her Hollywood co-star Vin Diesel is realising it on the sets of xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.

The Fast and Furious star took to Facebook to share an all new picture from the shooting of xXx and he and Deepika hardly seemed to be buddies. In fact, they had knives out for each other, ready to slash and attack. The Bajirao Mastani star plays action star Serena in the film while Diesel reprises the role of Xander Cage.

Deepika Padukone looks fearsome as the action heroine. The tattoos and lean look suggest her’s will be a strong female character. And considering the hall-of-fame action cast the movie has put together, Deepika will have to dig really deep to hold her own.

A day before, it was the turn of director DJ Caruso to feel sorry for a stuntman who found himself on the receiving end of Deepika’s fury while shooting. Caruso tweeted the picture of Deepika Padukone kicking some serious butt on the sets of her Hollywood debut starring Vin Diesel.

Caruso’s picture is captioned: “After the slate. I felt sorry for this stuntman. Serena unleashed! #xxx3 #xandercagereturns Dominican here we come.” The picture was posted just as the crew got ready to say goodbye to Toronto and begin production in the Dominican Republic.
