New Delhi (Web Desk): Recently gorgeous Deepika Padukone spoke about how she got finalized for the role of Serena Unger in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, on The Ellen DeGeneres.

“About two-three years ago actually I auditioned for Fast and Furious 7, but for whatever reason that didn't work out. And I think people remember me from that audition… and then, about a year ago, I get a call from Paramount Pictures saying they are casting for this film and so I flew down and met the director DJ Caruso”, she revealed.

Further she added, “Vin Diesel found out in Los Angeles that I was in Toronto and said he wanted me to come and see him. So, overnight I flew down to LA to see Vin. Suddenly, in the middle of the night, we are doing this 45-minute professional photoshoot and I was like, ‘What is going on?”
