A Grand reception , dazzling splendor and a pleasurable turmoil- Vin Diesel has landed in India. The fast and Furious fame commenced his two day sojourn in India, with his co-star Deepika Padukone, for the promotion of their upcoming flick xXx: Return of the Xander Cage.
The actor, who landed at Mumbai’s Chattrapati Shivaji Airport airport on Thursday was welcomed with ostentatious pomp. He walked out of the airport hand in hand with Deepika, who will be marking her debut in Hollywood with the movie. The stars received rousing traditional reception in what was proper Maharashtrian culture and the two were greeted with a tilak. This was followed by loud dhol beats, women bikers on bullets wearing nauvari sarees to welcome the two. Other women were dressed in red saris and yellow turbans paired with boots, giving them a modernized Desi look.
Their arrival made the crowd go crazy, who gathered to catch a glimpse of the duo. The two smilingly posed for the shutterbugs. The duo were accompanied by the Director of the film DJ Caruso, who also came along to publicize their upcoming film. DJ expressed his happiness about his visit to India over social media and even tweeted a picture of how Vin and Deepika were followed by the paparazzi on the streets of Mumbai, though he spelled Mumbai incorrectly. “Deepika Padukone and Vin Diesel chased by photographers on streets of Muambi. I am in car behind them,” Caruso tweeted.
