xXx trailer finally landed on Wednesday morning but where is Deepika Padukone?We were waiting desperately for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage trailer. Why? Deepika Padukone, of course. The Hollywood debut of our Bollywood star starring Vin Diesel, was soon be out and this would be the big break we were out waiting for.
Imagine our shock when the xXx trailer finally landed on Wednesday morning. Yes, there is Vin Diesel and he is playing a “different kind of soldier” to justify the world we are living in today. In this action-packed trailer Vin Diesel is taking on threats “we don’t even know exist”. As expected, it is an out-and-out Vin Diesel vehicle.There is Samuel L Jackson talking about how the world is no more safe as he brandishes his chopsticks about.But where is Deepika Padukone? We see her in about three scenes as she brandishes a knife and a gun about. The voiceover says “guns, girls, global domination” as we see Deepika’s blink-and-you-miss-it appearances in xXx trailer. There is not even one dialogue that the actress gets to say in the xXx trailer. Hell, even Ruby Rose gets to have her say in there.
We see Deepika spin a blade in one of the scenes, she is there holding with a gun in her hand and a scene in the xXx trailer where she shares the gun pose with RoseIn fact, we got more of her when teaser before the trailer launched two days ago. In the clip, Deepika was in a face-off with Vin Diesel but held her own. She told him in a real Indian accent, “Whatever it is you are here for, you’re gonna come up short,” before spinning a knife. Deepika plays the role of Serena Unger in the film.Deepika is yet to share the trailer but we are hoping that xXx: the Return of Xander Cage is saving her for something good. Hopefully, the movie will not be an extension of the trailer with a truncated part for Deepika.
Directed by DJ Caruso, the film is up for a January 20, 2017 release.
