The made-for-India trailer highlights her scenes in the film. “However that doesn’t mean she is as omnipresent in the film as the trailer suggests. In a Vin Diesel film the actresses are as vital as Parveen Babi or Jaya Prada in the Amitabh Bachchan starrers of the 1980s and 1990s,” cautions a source close to the project.


Not that Deepika is allowing footage to rule her participation in the marketing of XXX. From mid-December Deepika gets busy promoting her only Hollywood assignment while shooting for Padmavati in Mumbai comes to a standstill.
