“xXx” star Vin Diesel just went live on Facebook to let everyone know that his special friend, Bollywood star Deepika Padukone, has finally joined him back on the sets.

It starts with Vin’s praises for Deepika and saying that “the world is going to know who she is after the film releases.” He also adds how “he’s very happy that she’s in the movie and has brought her magic to the new “xXx” film. Padukone even plants a kiss on his cheek as he raves about her importance in his film.

And here’s the best bit, she got Vin Diesel to say,” Namaste, main aap sabhi ko bahut pyaar karta hoon.”

In the spur of the moment, Padukone almost revealed the actual release date of the movie accidentally as February 15 and not January 20, contrary to popular perception. Diesel does try to salvage the damage by reiterating that the release date is January 20,2017 and Padukone also tries to contain her gaffe by correcting herself.

She stars as Serena Unger opposite Vin Diesel in “xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” the third film of the “xXx” series.
