I feel very proud that I get to represent my country! – Deepika Padukone on her Hollywood debut


Deepika Padukone is gearing up for her big Hollywood debut with xXx: The Return of Xander Cage which stars Vin Diesel.

The actor was already on her way to the US yesterday to promote the movie. In an interaction with the media, DP revealed how excited and nervous she was for the movie. She said, “I am really excited. This is my Hollywood debut. I am very nervous, but I am also very excited. And today is the beginning of that journey. Hopefully, we’ll be coming to India soon as well.”

When questioned on if she would now be touted as an International actor, Deepika smiled and said, “I don’t know; I think I want to be known as a good person and a good actor. That is more important. But I feel very proud that I get to represent my country, especially in this kind of an action franchise film. I am really excited. I am very sure that we will enjoy this film because of the content. There is a lot of action and adventure which we have not seen in Indian films before. So, I’m excited that I can bring this movie to India and show it to everyone.”

xXx will be releasing in India first on January 14, 2017 before its worldwide release. “In terms of promotion, first we will head to Mexico. As far as the release is concerned, we will first release the movie in India. While shooting the film, I had told the entire team that it would be great (to first release it in India) and I am happy that it happened finally. It is a huge international film and franchise and I’m so happy that India is such a big part of that plan,” Deepika stated.
