Deepika made headlines in 2013 when she famously turned down a role in Hollywood action blockbuster, Fast and Furious 7.

But if this has proven anything, it’s that the West wants a piece of her even more!

In January 2017, moviegoers all around the world will finally be able to see our much-loved Deeps in her Hollywood debut – xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.

The excitement for her role has already sent social media into a frenzy with a trending hashtag, #SerenaUnger, and an exclusive behind-the-scene video on set.

There is truly nowhere to go for her highly-anticipated foray into Hollywood but all the way up to the top of the box office!
