Deepika Padukone’s first Hollywood venture is all set to be release on January 20, next year. Bad Ass Serena seems thrilling; playing with guns and arms, performing stunts with Vin Diesel, is already proclaimed to be the Next Big Star in Hollywood.
Here, she gives all credits to renowned filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, for the physical toughness and practices, the role required in xXx. In an interview with Rajeev Masand she was asked
Has this been the most physically demanding roles that you have played?
Deepika quickly denied and said,
No. Actually Bajirao (Mastani) prepared me for this. Honestly I think Bajirao… I won’t’ even say Bajirao, I would say working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali has..kind of sets you up for the greatest of challenges. And yes, Bajirao to an extent – from the physical point of view – I think the training that the film required, the kind of action that it required and whatever we went through in that movie, physically and emotionally prepared me to take this (xXx: RoXC).
