Padukone was ecstatic when she announced that the action-packed ensemble will release first in India, just like John Favreau's fantasy adventure The Jungle Book and Ron Howard's suspense thriller Inferno. xXx: Return of Xander Cage is slated to release on 14 January, a week before it hits the theatres worldwide.

As the icing on the cake, Padukone has now confirmed that Hollywood star Diesel, who plays the lead in the film, will be in India for a couple of days before the release to promote their film. She shared her excitement on Twitter with an adorable message in Hindi for her co-star, stating how India cannot wait to host Diesel on 12 and 13 January, immediately prior to the release of their film in the country.

While there are no details available on their promotional plan for those two days yet, there were rumours that the two will share the couch on filmmaker Karan Johar's chat show Koffee with Karan Season 5.

What Deepika did reveal, however, were their promotional plans in the other side of the world. While leaving India on 1 January, she announced that they will kick-start the promotional tour in Mexico. Now that she has announced that Diesel will be heading to India to promote the film, it is sure to make her Hollywood debut all the more special.

xXx: Return of Xander Cage is the third installment of the xXx franchise. It is directed by DJ Caruso and also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Tony Jaa, Ruby Rose and Donnie Yen among others. Padukone plays the role of an Indian agent Serena Unger. She will be seen in an action avatar and romancing Diesel, who plays the titular character of Xander Cage.
