Now when you see her in the xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage trailer, you'll never say Deepika Padukone appears to be uncertain in regards to her feelings.

Yet, in an uncommon affirmation, she acknowledged that her Hollywood trip "hasn't been simple". She told a main daily paper that "At first, I didn't feel like I was prepared to take up a universal undertaking. I was offered movies in the past as well, yet they simply didn't feel right. I have dependably taken after my heart and my intuition." And that she was primarily offered cliché parts previously.

But, she also admitted that times were changing. “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,” she said. She concludes, "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.”
