Hollywood star Vin Diesel, who will reach here on Thursday morning along with his ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ co-star Deepika Padukone to promote the movie in India, has a packed itinerary full of fan interactions, a glitzy red carpet gala and a star-studded premiere. Plans are in place to give Diesel a “splendid taste of India”.

It’s a very good day for Deepika Padukone’s fans. Deepika, 31, and her xXx 3 co-star Vin Diesel arrived in Mumbai on Thursday morning amidst much fanfare. They will spend all day promoting the film, which will also have a premiere here. xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is the actress’ maiden Hollywood film, in which she features as lethal secret operative Serena Unger. Vin Diesel returns as the specially-trained government operative in the third installment of the xXx series of films. Earlier this month, Deepika sent an invitation to Vin he could not refuse. In a tweet in Hindi, desi girl Deepika wrote: “India is frantically waiting for you. We’ll meet soon on January 12 and 13,” and here they are.

The actors, along with other members of the film’s cast and crew, have been on an extensive worldwide promotional spree to promote ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’. They are coming to India from London, before which they had visited Mexico.

The movie, a new instalment in the ‘xXX’ series after the 2002 film ‘xXx’ and the 2005 entertainer ‘xXx: State of the Union’, is releasing in India on January 14, before anywhere else in the world. Directed by DJ Caruso, the film also stars Ruby Rose, Samuel L Jackson, Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa.

Deepika and Vin walked out of the airport hand-in-hand, following which they were welcomed with an aarti. Vin and Deepika were also accompanied by xXx 3 director DJ Caruso. The trio were greeted with a tika and a grand desi-style welcome.

Deepika and Vin’s Mumbai schedule includes a press conference in the evening, followed by a premiere of xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage. January continues to be a very busy month for Deepika Padukone, who attended the European premiere of her Hollywood debut on January 10 in London, represented her film at a Golden Globes after party before that and celebrated her birthday at the Mexico premiere of xXx 3 on January 5.

Deepika made a splash each time she made an appearance for xXx 3 – she was ravishing in a scarlet Stella McCartney in London, turned heads in a yellow Ralph Lauren at the Golden Globes party and redefined chic in a black pant suit at the Mexico premiere. After Deepika Padukone is done with her duties for xXx 3, she will resume filming her next Bollywood project, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed period film Padmavati. She plays the protagonist – the Rajput queen of the title – with Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh cast opposite her. Deepika’s last Hindi film was 2015’s Bajirao Mastani, also made by Mr Bhansali and co-starring Ranveer. xXx: The Return of Xander Cage also stars Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev and Tony Jaa, and releases in India on January 14 while it’s international release date is January 19.
