In their review of ‘xXx – Return of Xander Cage’ Hollywood Reporter wrote that Deepika Padukone has stolen the action show from under Vin Diesel.
Even though the film isn’t what critics would rave about, Deepika has shone in her role and she is getting major appreciation following the film’s release in the international markets. Her character, Serena, has conquered the world!
Deepika hit the ball out of the park as far as an Indian actor is concerned by being cast in such a popular Hollywood franchise alongside two of the biggest names in action cinema of the world – Diesel and Donnie Yen.
The unanimous feedback of trade analysts, critics and audience has been that Deepika has held her own in the film and how, finally, Xander’s character has found a match.
There is a sense of utmost pride that we can see in the people here for Deepika Padukone.
Her character is so independent and strong and Deepika has coupled that with an even powerful performance in the film, writes Hollywood Reporter.
The makers were so happy with what Deepika brought on the table that they decided to release the film one week prior in India. The team, including Diesel, even came to India to promote the film here and had a grand premiere in Deepika’s homeland.
This has led to the actress opening doorways for many others to explore global cinema in such a big manner.
The actress is overwhelmed and happy with the response, love and warmth that she has been receiving from her fans.
