Deepika Padukone has been riding high on success for a while now. The actress who has been proving her mettle in Bollywood made her Hollywood debut this year opposite Vin Diesel in XXX: Return Of Xander Cage. Even though the film might not have managed to impress the Indian audience it is still one of the highest grossers in the international market. 

With XXX, Deepika surprised us with her high octane action scenes and if you were craving for more, then we have some good news in store for you.  A report in DNA suggests that the makers are planning to make a sequel to the film and Deepika has high chances of being a part of it. A source told the daily,  “Deepika will, in all probability, be a part of the sequel because her contract reportedly has a clause that says if the box-office business of the film crosses the $170 million mark (which it did and did far more), she will definitely reprise the role of Serena. It also apparently specifies that her role will become meatier and longer in the next outing.”

In an earlier interaction on Twitter, director DJ Caruso had also confirmed Deepika's entry in the fourth part of the franchise.

During the promotions of XXX, Deepika had narrated the story of how she bagged a role opposite Vin Diesel. The Padmavati actress had said, "I actually auditioned for 'Furious 7' about two or three years ago and for whatever reason, that didn't work out and I think people remember me for that audition." She further added, "Everyone talks about that chemistry and people remember me from that and then, about a year ago, I get a call from Paramount saying that they are casting for this film and I flew down and met DJ, my director Caruso, and then Vin found out in Los Angeles that I was in Toronto. So overnight, luckily I had a visa, and he said, 'I want her to come and see me'."

While we'll get to witness Deepika as Serena in XXX 4 the actress is currently gearing up for the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati and we are totally looking forward to this one.
