Actress Deepika Padukone is a famous face in Bollywood with many hits to her name, however, her tally in Hollywood is comparatively quite low, having acted in only 1 Hollywood film so far 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage', the 3rd film in the 'xXx' series. Now, her next Hollywood film has also been confirmed as the 4th film in the 'xXx' franchise.

The first film in the 'xXx' franchise began with the 2002 film 'xXx', followed by the 2005 film 'xXx: State of the Union' with the 3rd film 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' marking Deepika's debut.

The director of 'xXx' D.J. Caruso confirmed that Deepika will be returning for the next film in the franchise. Caruso welcomed Chinese singer-actor Roy Wang to the 'xXx' family in a tweet on Monday, and when asked if Deepika would be a part of the film as well, he said 'Yes'.

The first xXx earned a total of $277.4 million, and xXx: State of the Union earned a total of only $71.1 million, while the Deepika starrer xXx: Return of Xander Cage earned a total of $346.3 million.

Deepika Padukone was last seen in filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmaavat, and has since then is said to have become selective about other future projects.

However, reports now say that Deepika may now be seen in a superhero film, which would see her in action scenes. Deepika was to start shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj’s film with Irrfan Khan but the film has been postponed due to Irrfan’s health.

There were reports that Deepika has not signed her next film due to the quality of roles coming her way. Other rumours claim that she is keeping her calendar empty so she can marry long-time beau Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh.
