XXX:Return of Xander Cage is shaping up for an exciting premiere. What makes the movie special for Indian film fans is the presence of Deepika Padukone alongside Vin Diesel. The two share some spectacular chemistry on screen. In a recent interview with Rajeev Masand, Diesel spoke about his 'love' for his co-star. 

Masand opened the interview with a message for the XXX star from Padukone. The actress asked Diesel about his favourite scene from the film, and the most fun moment in all the time they spent together. Ever charming, Diesel replied that 'All of my moments with her are beautiful.' The actor also let on the fact that the two share some incredible 'chemistry' on screen. 

Diesel said that it was when Padukone was testing for Fast 7 that they discovered the natural screen presence the duo shared. But the moment of the interview was when Diesel said, "I loved every single moment that I spent with her." 

Incidentally, it was a promise to Padukone that led to XXX:Return of Xander Cage's Indian premiere. The actor said that the only condition Padukone had for signing on the film was to have an Indian premiere, and that the premiere was in the pipeline. "I was at Paramount last week, and they are talking about doing it in January. So, it's really going to happen," gushed the actor, "My love for her can't be put into words."

Talking about his favourite scene in the movie, Diesel said, "My favourite scene from the film is when we filmed the scene together on the waterfront...it has so much heart in it. It jumps off the screen." The actor added, "I feel so blessed that I am gonna be a part of her introduction to the world. She's the next global superstar coming from India."

Safe to say, Padukone has one big fan in Vin Diesel.
