A group of women dressed in red saris and yellow turbans welcomed Diesel, who looked excited to say the least. Wearing white jeans, a grey tee and black shades, he walked out of the Mumbai airport hand-in-hand with Deepika, who sported an all-black look (jeans, jacket, high-heels and sunglasses). They were all smiles and happy with the warm reception they received.

Diesel’s two-day India trip is packed with fan meets, lots of action and drama. He is promoting xXx: Return of Xander Cage, which is releasing in India on Friday — before anywhere else in the world.

xXx : Return of Xander Cage also stars Donnie Yen, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, Toni Collette and Samuel L. Jackson.
