Bollywood’s leading lady Deepika Padukone, who is currently busy promoting her upcoming costume-drama Padmavati, has signed her next Hollywood project, reportedly. The actress will return to play Serena Unger in the next instalment of the xXx franchise, alongside Hollywood action star Vin Diesel.
After starring in many notable films and winning several top honours in Bollywood, Deepika made her smashing Hollywood debut earlier this year with none other than Vin Diesel in xXx: Return Of Xander Cage.
Though the highly promoted film, which also stars Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev, Samuel L Jackson and Tony Jaa, among others, did not perform as per expectations in India, it went on to topple many box office records in the international market.
And now, if reports are to be believed, the makers of the actioner are planning to take the franchise forward and there are bright chances of Deepika reprising her role in xXx 4.
A source close to the makers of the film, told a leading daily, “Deepika will, in all probability, be a part of the sequel because her contract reportedly has a clause that says if the box-office business of the film crosses the $170 million mark, she will definitely reprise the role of Serena. It also apparently specifies that her role will become meatier and longer in the next outing.”
We are waiting for an official announcement on the same.
