Padukone, who starred with Vin Diesel in her debut Hollywood flick, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, on being quizzed by Ellen about rumored link-ups with the actor, said, “Well, there’s no smoke without fire.”
When a startled Ellen pressed further, she added, “But, it’s all in my head! So yeah, I mean in my head I think, like yeah, we are together and we have this amazing chemistry, and we live together and we have these amazing babies! But it’s all in my head.”
Here’s an excerpt from the show.
Padukone, an established name in Bollywood with over 30 films to her credit, has earned praise for her performance in the film. And her chemistry with Diesel is the talk of town.
Social media posts by both actors in the run-up to the release of their movie have gone viral.
Padukone further went on to talk about how she landed her part in the film.
“I actually auditioned for Fast and Furious 7 about two-three years ago but for whatever reason that didn’t work out. And I think people remember me from that audition. And then, about a year ago, I get a call from Paramount Pictures saying they are casting for this film and so I flew down and met director DJ Caruso.”
And until Diesel put this picture up on Instagram, sans a caption nonetheless, she had no clue that she’d been selected. https://www.instagram.com/p/-8Bt_amPiZ/
She even told him, “I do hope you know that if you put that snap up, it means I am doing this movie. He still didn’t say anything!”
xXX: Return of the Xander Cage released globally last weekend.
Padukone, meanwhile, is visibly excited about her debut on Ellen’s hit talk show. https://www.instagram.com/p/BPYp3IZjK5u/
