Deepika Padukone’s Hollywood venture xXx: Return of Xander Cage ha released in India, a week before anywhere else in the world. The action film is being very well received by the fans. Vin Diesel, as promised by Deepika, flew down to India to attend the premiere of his film, and was received at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Airport, Mumbai amidst massive fanfare. He stayed here for two days before flying back to home. India has certainly left Vin impressed. Before he left the city, Deepika took him out on a chai date!
The only chai, the west knows of is something called chai tea latte. We can’t be sorry enough for whatever overpriced fiasco that is being served there in the name of chai. So, obviously, it was great opportunity to introduce the Hollywood action star to introduce to authentic Indian chai, as he was here in the country. Vin has posted a picture on his social media, where he is seen raising a toast of chai with co-star Deepika Padukone. Both are dressed to perfection, ready to take on the ramp, along with the world. But are not in some high end coffee shop for chai, but, what looks like, a local canteen, the one with those glass cups, and stove. Deepika and Vin pose cutely, staring into each others eyes, while holding the glasses of warm chai in their hands. Now, that is called a perfect Desi date! Vin captioned the picture: “Cheers to India! Thank you for the love and hospitality…”
xXx: Return of Xander Cage director D.J. Caruso had also accompanied Vin. The filmmaker also said that this is the best welcome her has ever received.
He had tweeted:
The greatest welcome ever! #XXXIndiaPremiere. Wow and a blessing to go with it!
