Priyanka Chopra ready? Deepika Padukone's xXx move

Deepika likely to make her Hollywood debut with Vin Diesel

Bollywood beauty Deepika Padukone made her way into celluloid with Farah Khan's 'Om Shanti Om' (2007) opposite none other than superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

The movie was a blockbuster but not many thought that model Deepika had what it takes to be a top actor.

Eight years after her debut, the model-turned-actor is the most sought after female artists among producers, directors and co-stars.

With each performance, in the recent years, fans and critics noticed and loved Deepika.

Now Hollywood beckons the 'Tamasha' actress.

Deepika will soon be joining the illustrious list of Indian artists going international.

Some names like Irrfan Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Om Puri have bagged meaty projects in Hollywood, a lot of others even settle for cameos and blink-and-miss roles to further their career in cinema.

More recently, Priyanka Chopra is making waves with her TV show 'Quantico'.

Chopra has gotten raves so far with E! calling the actress 'the most ridiculously beautiful specimen on planet earth,' tvguide.com says 'she's the real deal.'

Posters of the former Miss World dominated the busy spots of US and Los Angeles; television channels rallied in to get her interview and tabloids going breathless talking about the Indian star.

The expectations were quite high, and this former beauty queen has nailed it so far.

Now the stage is set for Deepika as she bags a role in the Vin Diesel starrer 'XXX: The Return of Xander Cage'.

The actress who had auditioned for the role has managed to convince the makers. In fact it was Deepika herself who added fuel to the rumours by posting a picture of herself hugging Vin Diesel with the logo of 'XXX' plastered in the background.

Her manager Anirban too has posted the same photo on his social media account and written a congratulatory message to go with it while she was busy finishing all formalities in America.

And then comes a picture post from Vin Diesel himself - Deepika can be seen sitting beside Vin as they both pose for the camera.

Sanskriti Media and Entertainment

Deepika grabbed headlines a few years ago when she was approached to star in 'Fast and Furious 7' but turned down the offer to accommodate dates for 'Happy New Year'. But now it seems another big Hollywood connect is emerging for the popular actress.

After amassing some rave reviews for her role in Imtiaz Ali's 'Tamasha', Deepika is gearing up for another release - 'Bajiroa Mastani'.

Screen grab

As fate has it both Deepika and Priyanka will be seen together in the film and romancing the same man.

Both the actresses share a friendly relationship and said that they had each other’s back while working together.

Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see their friendly face-off of sorts in 'Bajiroa Mastani' and in Hollywood.
