Vin Diesel has teased fans 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. Though Diesel, 48, has left the fans guessing by keeping the picture caption-less, Deepika’s Piku co-star Irrfan Khan confirmed the news by congratulating the actor.
“A big congratulations to our favourite #Piku for her smashing #Hollywooddebut with #Vindiesel @DeepikaPadukone,” he posted on Facebook. 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
