Vin Diesel coming to India gotta be a goddamn big deal. I mean, this is going to be his first ever visit to India and who else than his xXx: Return Of Xander Cage co-star Deepika Padukone will be playing his gorgeous host. In fact, Deepika already announced Diesel’s arrival through this adorable Twitter post in Hindi saying, ““विन, इंडिया बेसब्री से तुम्हारा इंतज़ार कर रहा है! जल्द ही मुलाकात होगी, १२ और १३ जनवरी को! हम सबका ढेर सारा प्यार (Vin, India is eagerly waiting for you. See you soon on January 12 and 13. Lots of love)” While this tweet was enough to double up our excitement. Wait until you check out the big surprise DP has in store for Vin as soon as he lands in Mumbai on the 12th of Jan.
In interaction with Mid-Day, a source close to the xXx production team revealed, “We plan to receive him at the airport with band baaja and garland. As the host, Deepika wants nothing short of a perfect welcome, so that Diesel has a warm, enjoyable stay here. He will be introduced to mouth-watering Indian delicacies too. Of the many things on the list, one of them is a big party to be hosted by Deepika, with the top guns of Bollywood in attendance. As of now, we have given him two options for his stay — top hotels in Colaba and central Mumbai. The latter would be ideal since it’s closer to the multiplex where the movie will premiere.” Doesn’t that sound exciting?
