Deepika Padukone is all set for world domination like Serena Unger in her Hollywood debut with Vin Diesel starrer xXx: Return of Xander Cage. The release of the action film in India shut every mouth, which speculated that she will have a blink and miss role in it. A few weeks ago it was reported that she would make her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. This was followed by rumours that unlike Priyanka Chopra’s appearance on Ellen, Deepika won’t go solo but with Vin, and that her episode would NOT be shot in front of live audience. Proving it all wrong as well, Deepika made her smashing debut on American talk show scene – solo and live. The Ellen DeGeneres Show featuring Deepika aired today, and well, she was funny, graceful, and a lil bit CRAZY.
Dressed in a white Michael Kors number, Deepika Padukone looked a little nervous when the chat began. Ellen, being a fan of badminton herself, first talked about Deepika’s father Prakash Padukone. Then they talked about how Deepika got the part in xXx: Return of Xander Cage. The actress said that she still doesn’t know if she got the part, and that statement cracked the live audience up. Then, while looking at her pictures with Vin, Ellen directed the conversation towards talking about the romance rumours between the two actors. Deepika, to our shock and surprise says, “There is no smoke without fire,” Ouch! All the die hard fans of Ranveer and Deepika might not feel very comfortable hearing these words. Deepika then goes on to clarify her statement and says that this is all in her head. “I mean in my head I think, like yeah, we are together and we have this amazing chemistry, and we live together and we have these amazing babies! But it’s all in my head,” Deepika says, leaving the host very very confused. Ellen simply tags Deepika as “crazy” for having a crush on Vin like this.
Deepika also narrated an anecdote where she borrowed Rs 10,000 from her mother so that she can get a professional photoshoot done. Ellen said that she must have paid it back, now that she has done over 30 movies, including xXx: Return of Xander Cage.
Well, graceful, funny and crazy – Deepika made one entertaining appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show!
