Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone made her Hollywood debut with popular actor Vin Diesel-starrer 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' in 2016. But unlike her friend and actress Priyanka Chopra, Deepika's Hollywood debut did not work out for her and the actress seemed to be quite disappointed with this fact. While the film's director DJ Caruso confirmed that Deepika will be part of the film's sequel, reports suggest that Deepika seems to be not interested in starring in the sequel. The actress is reportedly quite upset with the director because she has not received any contract for the film and she has also not expressed her consent of doing the sequel. Deepika essayed the character of Serena Unger in the film. The 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' actress did some dangerous stunts and action sequences in the film. 'xXx: Return Of Xander Cage' revolved around the story of a former satellite programmer, Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) who is called by the NSA ( National Security Agency) to find out a satellite controller which got stolen from the CIA or Central Intelligence Agency. 'xXx: Return Of Xander Cage' was the third installment of the 'xXx' franchise, the first two installments were: 'xXx' in 2002 and 'xXx: State of the Union' in 2005. Besides Deepika Padukone and Vin Diesel, the film also starred Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose.

During the release of the film, Deepika was extremely excited and impressed by her character. In 2017, during a Twitter interaction, when a fan asked the director of the film, DJ Caruso whether Deepika will be part of the fourth installment of the franchise or not, the director confirmed the news by saying 'Yes'. 

 

 

However, going by recent reports, Deepika is reportedly not interested in doing the film as it didn't prove to be of any substance to her career.
