“I was waiting for the opportunity to come here. And she is the queen and angel who is such a blessing in my life. She has a such a beautiful soul. To be a part of the magic that is made on-screen is a blessing of my life,” said Vin
Vin has come to India for the first time the actor revealed that he had always cherished the thought of coming to India and it has been possible only because of Deepika. “I was waiting for an opportunity to come to India. It was this queen here, this angel (who made it happen). It is such a blessing that she is in my life. Such a blessing to have someone in my life who is such a beautiful soul,” he said.
Vin and Deepika along with director D.J. Caruso, hosted a press conference for the promotion of their upcoming action “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” which releases in India prior to US.
