‘Fast And Furious 8’ Update: Vin Diesel Adds Bollywood Actress Deepika Padukone To The Star Cast?
“Fast and Furious 8” is supposed to hit the theaters on April 14, 2017, as announced by Vin Diesel. But what would be interesting to see is whether Deepika Padukone, an extremely popular Indian actress, would also feature in the latest franchise.
There may be a new face in the upcoming movie “Fast and Furious 8.” Vin Diesel might rope in Deepika Padukone for a role in the movie, yibada.com reports.
There have been some rumors lately that Diesel might include the leading lady from her sequel “Xander Cage Returns” for the latest “Fast and Furious” film.
There was quite a stir among her Bollywood fans lately when Padukone uploaded an image of herself with the actor of “Fast Furious.” It was soon speculated that the Indian beauty is all set to be cast along with the actor in this new sequel of his blockbuster film of 2002.
Ever since there was a confirmation that Padukone would be seen with Diesel in the “XXX” sequel, her Bollywood fans and loyalists are keeping their fingers crossed that the actor might finally make up his mind for including her the forthcoming film “Fast And Furious” too.
This is because the actor has this tendency of roping in a director or an actor from his earlier movie to this hit franchise.
Diesel had previously brought director F. Gary Gray for directing “Fast And Furious 8.” It was also reported that the actor has earlier worked with him in the film “A Man Apart.”
Apparently, Diesel might have also made up his mind to bring in Helen Mirren in the film after the duo worked together in his last film “The Last Witch Hunter.” The movie got released some weeks ago.
Though it is not yet confirmed whether, Helen Mirren is actually a part of the final star cast of “Fast And Furious 8,” there was a hint given by Vin Diesel in an interview given to MTV that the Oscar winner is a part of the list. Diesel is also the franchise producer for the movie.
