"So yeah, I mean in my head I think, like yeah, we are together and we have this unbelievable chemistry, and we live together and we have these incredible babies!" Padukone, much like Priyanka Chopra, has risen to fame in India with a long list of film and television credits, yet is still fairly new to American audiences. This would be the place to offer the entire riveting genealogy born with the movie xXx in 2002 and continuing on with xXx: State of The Union in 2005, but, nah.

Directed by D. J. Caruso, the film also stars Vin Diesel, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev and Samuel L. Jackson in key roles.

With the paid previews on Friday's evening, xXx Return of Xander Cage minted the fair amount of 1.75 crore, while the new Hindi release OK Jaanu had reported the opening business of 4.08 crores in the whole day.
