Mumbai: Actress Deepika Padukone, who made her Hollywood foray with the Vin Diesel-starrer "xXx: Return of Xander Cage", will return to the franchise for its fourth instalment, according to its director DJ Caruso.
Deepika Padukone in next 'xXx' film, confirms director
Caruso, on Twitter, welcomed Chinese singer-actor Roy Wang to the "xXx" family on Monday.
"Yes," replied Caruso, thereby confirming that the popular actress will be back in the action-packed franchise.
Asked if there was any update on Deepika's shooting schedule for the film, Caruso responded to a fan: "Working it out now script being scheduled."
Deepika's foray into Hollywood had created a strong buzz. In fact, last year Diesel had made his maiden visit to India as he came down to Mumbai with Caruso and the Bollywood actress to promote ""xXx: Return of Xander Cage". He was welcomed with 'desi' fanfare.
The franchise began with the 2002 film "xXx", which was followed by the 2005 entertainer "xXx: State of the Union".
The third "xXx" movie, featuring Deepika as Serena Unger, had grossed over $300 million worldwide.
