The XXX: Return of Xander Cage trailer is out and it’s giving us all kind of feels. Firstly, let’s be honest Vin Diesel has always been paired up with waif-like stunners to balance his testosterone filled presence on screen but this one just feels different.

Deepika doesn’t only manage to stand out in a way that Vinny’s other leading ladies never have but overshadows the star himself. Is it because of her sexy new muscular bod or unapologetic Indian accent? We don’t know but the renegade agent thing fits her like a glove.

At the trailer launch she told press that the director encouraged her to speak just the way she usually does.

“If my co-stars Tony Jaa (Thailand) and Toni Collette (Australia) can speak English with an accent, then why can’t I?..I play an Indian girl in the film, and for me its a matter of great pride that I get to be myself. That is one of the aspects that drew me to the script and attracted me to do this film, the fact that for once, I was allowed to be myself is fantastic. I was allowed to flaunt that I am Indian”

We spotted this bad assery in Ram Leela when Deeps flirted with the enemy and displayed her sword fighting chops as a warrior in Bajirao Mastani. Padukone thrives in roles where she is challenging herself physically and allows her fierceness to shine through.
