    Deepika Padukone is gearing up for her big Hollywood debut with xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage. But you will be surprised to know that initially, Deepika thought that she was not ready for it yet.

    In an interview to HT Cafe, Deepika Padukone revealed, ''Initially, I didn't feel like I was ready [to take up an international project]. I was offered films in the past too, but they just didn't feel right. I have always followed my heart and my instinct. It is up to you to say yes or no to a role that doesn't excite you. The films I was offered earlier didn't excite me.''

    xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is the third film in the series after 2002's film xXx and 2005's film xXx: State of the Union.

    In the same interview, Deepika Padukone said, ''The world is waking up to [new] talent. Having said that, it is all about whether an actor suits a role or not. An actor should be cast in a movie only if his or her talent brings something unique to the table. I don't think an actor's religion, gender, or the region he or she belongs to, should be the reason to sign him or her for a film."

    xXx: Return of Xander Cage is the third film in the xXx franchise. However, it is related mostly to the first film xXx (2002) starring Vin Diesel. Deepika Padukone plays Serena Unger, who, at one point, was Xander Cage's lover.

    Deepika Padukone's fans were very disappointed after seeing her blink and miss appearance in the first trailer of the movie. But she has assured her fans that there's more of her in xXx: Return of Xander Cage than what the trailer seems to have suggested.
