Vin Diesel is currently in Mumbai to promote his film xXx: Return Of Xander Cage with Deepika Padukone. At a press conference on Thursday evening, he surprised everyone by revealing that Padukone will be a part of the next film in the xXx franchise.

Asked whether he would like to work with Padukone again, Diesel asked the director DJ Caruso to step in. “When are we working together again?” the action star asked Caruso. "I am preparing for something to be ready by spring/summer,” the director replied.

“If in May we start filming for the next xXx, it will be evident how much I like working with her [Padukone],” Diesel said.

This means Padukone has a second Hollywood film in her kitty, even before the release of her debut film.

A lot will depend, of course, on the success of Return Of Xander Cage. If this one works, there is no doubt that the next one will roll quickly and smoothly.
