Deepika Padukone broke the internet when she posted a mysterious picture of Vin Diesel hugging her with the logo of XXX behind her! Since then rumours have been strife that she will be starring in the next installment of the XXX franchise - XXX: The Return of Xander Cage.
Though the actress has not officially confirmed the news herself, we can pretty much assume where the tide is flowing. If this is officially confirmed, Deepika Padukone will be the second actress to cross across the Atlantic, after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
And she could also be the first Indian actress who will be joining the Legion of Hottest Female Sidekicks in Hollywood!
Never heard of this? Fine, we have started this new cult where we worship all the actresses who appear in the high octane action films, who also have a dual personality - to be both eye-candy, as well as kick some ass!
With XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, Deepika is all set to be a part of this elite club, that has the below beauties who recently kicked ass!
Film: The first xXx film
The daughter of famed Italian horror director Dario Argento, took a break from her father's scary works and went to to work on with Vin Diesel in the first XXX film. She was appreciated for the sexiness she brought on to the role, though she never returned for the sequel. It also looks like Deepika will be replacing her in the third film.
Film: Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation
She was easily the best thing about Tom Cruise's latest adventure as Ethan Hunt, stealing many a scenes from her far more experienced co-star. Not only she looked so damn sexy, she was a pro even in those action scenes. Remember that scene where she pinned sown a guy in one move? And of course, that bikini scene which our Censors chopped off!
Film: Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice
Though she met her untimely demise in Fast & Furious 6, she amped up the oomph quotient in the film as well as the predecessor, with her sexy sidekick act. Now she will steal more hearts with her Amazonian princess avatar in the upcoming Batman vs Superman film.
This hot French actress (who won a lot of acclaim for her lesbian turn in Blue is the Warmest Colour) was also a part of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, where she played a deadly assassin. In SPECTRE, she played a Bond girl, who is one of the very lucky few to actually walk away with the always single spy by the end of the film.
Film: Fantastic 4, Machete and Machete Kills
Jessica Alba may not be known much for her acting chops, but she is definitely a stunner when it comes to the looks department! She played with our hearts and the bad guys' asses in the both the Machete films (lucky you, Danny Trejo!). And as Sue Storm, absolutely spiffing!
Film: The Losers, Avatar, Star Trek, Guardians of The Galaxy
She could be the only actresses who may have been a part of some many huge blockbusters franchises, and also be able to kick some ass. And it's to her credit that she looked so smoking hot even with a green skin in GOTG!
Film: The Avengers series
If the fans are clamoring to have a solo Black Widow movie, and are getting disappointed that they're not getting one, you can understand the impact her role as the secret Russian spy has on the fans. Moreover, being the only female member among the mass of biceps and brawns, you will certainly stand out. And those looks...someone just kill me please!
Film: Transformers 1 and 2, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The best part of the Transformers franchise was not the fight between the space robots (Come on, didn't it get boring after a point?). It was Megan Fox bending over to repair Shia LaBeouf's car! Too bad, she didn't return for the third part, but then we had the below perfect replacement...
Film: Transformers 3, Mad Max: Fury Road
She is a former Victoria's Secret model, so you know her sexiness is ISO certified! If there is a reason why we didn't miss Megan Fox in the third part, it'because of her smouldering looks!
Film: Fast and The Furious series, The Machete series
Vin Diesel is one lucky dog! After all, he gets to play Chiggy Wiggy with some of hottest actresses around, like Asia Argento, Gal Gadot, and now Deepika Padukone. One of his main romantic interests was this Lost babe, who could drive cars as well as our hearts faster than any women could!
So do you think Deepika could win over the audiences there like these beauties? Share your thoughts!
