Posted On 2nd November, 2016 @ 17:51 pm by MTV Editor

Roping in stars from across the world and cashing in on their respective fan bases. Nicely done, D. J. Caruso! We see what you did there.

Indians are excited about the fact that our beloved Deepika Padukone is kicking ass in Hollywood with XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage. But if you look at the entire star cast, you’ll see that the makers have made a very calculated move by casting one superstar each from many countries across the world. Padukone even had her own trailer, tailormade for the Indian audience. 

 

When the official trailer of the movie released last night, it looks like all the artists got their own cut, which they dropped on their respective Instagram handles. Made especially to woo the audiences of the countries these actors belong to and have their largest fan bases in, these cuts introduce the characters of the movie along with their individual special skills.

As for the leading men, Vin Diesel and Samuel L. Jackson seem to be lying low for now. But if we were to hazard a guess, that’s probably some sort of PR trick too.
