The ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ co-stars Vin Diesel and Deepika Padukone arrived in India yesterday. After receiving a grand welcome, the Hollywood star revealed that it was his childhood dream to visit the country. Vin was also mesmerised by the dimpled beauty as he called her an angel with a beautiful soul.
"I was waiting for the opportunity to come here. And she is the queen and angel who is such a blessing in my life. She has a such a beautiful soul. To be a part of the magic that is made on-screen is a blessing of my life," said Vin about Deepika, who is making her Hollywood debut with this film.
Both the actors along with the director D.J. Caruso, hosted a press conference here to promote the upcoming action adventure, which releases in India prior to US.
"There is no one like Deepika. Though her origin is Indian, she is the queen of the whole world. I saw her in 'Bajirao Mastani' and she was mind-blowing," said Vin, heaping praise on his co-star.
"Being in this city (Mumbai) is like a dream comes true. I wanted to work with Deepika from a long time. I met her years ago. She requested me she wants to do the premiere in her country. So the fact is that we are here to keep her promise," he added.
"The love between two characters, me and Deepika in the film is the evidence of multi-culture global harmony we talk about," said "The Fast and Furious" star.
The movie is the third instalment of the "xXX" series after the 2002 film "xXx" and the 2005 entertainer "xXx: State of the Union". It also stars Ruby Rose, Samuel L Jackson, Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa.
