Deepika Padukone, the good girl gone bad, is all set for her Hollywood debut with xXx: Return of Xander Cage. Ahead of the film’s release on 13 January, the makers have released a behind-the-scenes clip of the actress talking very briefly about her character, the huntress Serena Under.
And as if it wasn’t enough that we saw Deepika kicking some serious bad-boy ass, the star revealed that her character is a lot like the leading man himself, Vin Diesel, a.k.a Xander Cage. Talking about her character, Deepika says, “When you first meet Serena, you don’t know whose side she is on. She is a representation of women in today’s world. She is independent, intelligent and can stand up for herself. She is always observing, learning. I think what draws Xander to Serena is the fact that he sees a lot of him in her. You realise how similar they are to each other and then you see how they work together as a team. Slowly you discover that she is there for a much larger mission.”
Directed by DJ Caruso, xXx: Return of Xander Cage will premier in India a week prior to its global release. Fans of the series will have more than one reason to look forward to the release since Vin Diesel himself will be flying down to Mumbai to attend the premier with Deepika herself.
