Deepika Padukone is a girl in hurry. From shooting schedules, promotion duties and accepting awards, she had her December and January all chalked out. The actor who is busy shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati opposite Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor will have to stop playing the queen for a while. The reason? She has to slip in black lycra and wield some guns and kick some butt.

According to the reports, Deepika will be taking a break from the magnum opus to promote her first Hollywood project in which she shares the screen with Fast and Furious actor, Vin Diesel. Deepika does not want to miss on the marketing of her Hollywood debut in India or abroad. She was earlier seen promoting the movie on the premiere episode of Salman Khan’s much talked about television reality show, Bigg Boss 10. She even released the special Indian trailer of xXx on the show. Instead of focussing on Vin Diesel who has a huge fan following across the world, the special trailer gives a glimpse into the daredevil avatar of Deepika.

And, now since the release date of her Hollywood debut is round the corner, from mid-December, she will be all geared up to promote the movie after completing the first schedule of Padmavati’s shooting. Rumour has it that Deepika will also be leaving for the US to attend the film’s world premiere.

“It is her wish to keep herself completely free from mid-December until the release on January 19. The first schedule of Padmavati wraps up mid-December,” said a source close to Bollywood Hungama. If the reports are to be believed then Vin Diesel wants his co-star, Deepika to accompany him across the globe promotions of their much-awaited, xXx: The Return Of The Xander Cage.

Directed by DJ Caruso, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is a sequel to the 2002 film xXx and 2005 film xXx: State of the Union. The film also stars Ruby Rose, Samuel L Jackson, Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa. It will release on January 19, 2017.
