It’s action time for Deepika Padukone: Actress leaves for Canada to start shooting for xXx

Deepika Padukone is making the right moves. After giving back to back nine successes, the actress has now signed her maiden Hollywood project- xXx: The Return of Xander Cage with Vin Diesel. While she wasn’t confirming the development, now we hear, Deepika is off to Canada for two months to shoot for her portions in the film.


The actress has been working out regularly and has been undergoing a grueling regimen at the gym every day to get into the perfect shape. A source says, “Deepika needs to gain muscles for the film. She doesn’t need to look bulky but has to be rather lean and powerful. Yasmeen Karachiwala has been training her and she has been sweating it out at the gym three times each day.”

What did her gym regimen consist of? “A lot of pilates, a lot of weight training for the upper body and legs. Also, she has been on a strict protein diet for sometime.” All this transformation will come into good use because Deepika will be seen doing some high octant stunts in the action-adventure flick.

There will be a lot of action sequences that she will be enacting for xXx,” a source close to the actress teased just before she left for Canada where she will be shooting for the film with Vin diesel for the next two months
