Hollywood action star Vin Diesel's upcoming feature film 'xXx: The Return of Xander Cage' will open in cinemas in India on 14th January, i.e. five days ahead of its worldwide release. The third film in the series, it is directed by DJ Caruso, and will hit international screens on January 19. The film also features Indian actress Deepika Padukone in a prominent role and this decision may have been taken considering her fan following in India. The announcement came on twitter, through Deepika's official twitter handle, "Thrilled to announce that xXx: The Return of Xander Cage will release in India first! Before anywhere else in the world," Deepika Padukone wrote on Twitter. "When Deepika first met us to talk about the role she said, 'If I do this role you have to promise me one thing that we do a premiere at India'. And just last week we were scheduling a premiere in India for January 2017," the 49 year old 'Fast And Furious' actor said in an interview. Vin Diesel will return to his role as the highly trained government operative in the action packed movie, which also stars Samuel Jackson. Earlier this year, Diesel hit headlines when he was reported to have had a tiff with 'Fast & Furious' co-star Dwayne Johnson on the sets of the 8th film in the franchise which is expected to hit the theaters in April.
