Hollywood actor Vin Diesel, who got a ‘desi’ welcome in India on Thursday morning, says he dreamt of exploring the country and is glad that his dream has finally come true.

Diesel, along with his xXx: Return of Xander Cage co-star Deepika Padukone and director DJ Caruso, was welcomed with dhol, ‘tutari’ and ‘tilak’. They arrived to a typical desi fanfare of women dressed in traditional Marathi nauvari (nine-yard) saris and yellow turbans.

Diesel expressed his excitement on Instagram.

He posted: “So honoured to be here in India for the first time. The xXx Global tour has been great and now I and Deepika Padukone are going to share this film with her country today. As a child, I always dreamed of visiting India... Thank you Paramount for making this dream come true. Xander.”

Diesel’s two-day India trip has a lot of things planned. He is promoting xXx: Return of Xander Cage, which is releasing in India on Saturday -- before anywhere else in the world.

The actors, along with other members of the film’s cast and crew, have been on an extensive worldwide promotional spree to promote the film. They visited London and Mexico before coming to India.

The movie is a new instalment in the xXX series after the 2002 film xXx and 2005’s xXx: State of the Union. It also stars Ruby Rose, Samuel L Jackson, Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa.
