Actress Deepika Padukone, who really missed her home while she was shooting of her upcoming Hollywood debut flick xXx: The Return of the Xander Cage, said India is my home and that’s never going to change. She recently returned to India after wrapping up the xXx shoot with Vin Diesel and other cast of the film in Toronto.
“India is home, and that’s never going to change,” Deepika said, who is trying to make up for all the time she was away from India.
“My roots are here, and at the end of the day, it’s about your roots. You can’t take India out of me. People go for holidays, but eventually, come back home. So, no matter where I go in the world, this [India] is home, and that will never change,” she added.
Ask her about how different is working in Hollywood from Bollywood, she says, “It was the same in terms of every minute detail. That’s what made me feel at home; made me feel comfortable. Most importantly, like any other film, all of us were on a journey.”
Elaborating on her experience shooting in Hollywood with people of different ethnicities, Deepika shared, “It was great fun. It was not about different people from different parts of the world coming together. We all came with our cultures to make a fun-filled and interesting movie. I am sure that will translate on screen too.”
The Bajirao Mastani actress is currently in Madrid to attend one of Bollywood’s most extravagant annual award show IIFA 2016, where she will be seen performing on the Spanish stage.
