Bollywood star Deepika Padukone’s Hollywood debut film xXx: Return of Xander Cage is all set to hit US theatres in the US. While the Bajirao Mastani actor has been going all out promoting the film, she revealed she is happy being less recognised in the West as compared to her home country.
“I do feel welcome. It has been amazing and I am having so much fun being here and doing all of this. It can be intimidating when you tread new territories. But it has been exactly the same,” Deepika told Pinkvilla when she was asked about the welcome she received in Hollywood.
Deepika added that working in the US has been a breath of fresh air for her after Bollywood. Given that she is a popular star in India, it is difficult for her to roam about freely on the streets without being pestered by fans. “It is nice being less recognised in the US. I enjoy it, at least for now.”
After making her international debut opposite Vin Diesel, the Piku star revealed she wants to work with Ryan Gosling as she loved his performance in La La Land, reported USA Today. “There’s so much of that movie that works: the acting, the honesty and the songs. It’s one of those classic love stories that is told in such an interesting manner visually. He’s absolutely brilliant and he’s definitely someone I want to work with,” said Deepika.
Meanwhile, the actor is also shooting for Padmavati opposite Shahid Kapoor and rumoured beau Ranveer Singh. The film releases on November 17, 2017.
