New Delhi [India], Feb. 3 (ANI): The world got excited when it learnt that Bollywood's shining star Deepika Padukone will be making her Hollywood debut alongside Vin Diesel but the diva recently gave us an insight as to what led her to say 'Yes' to be Serena Unger. In an interview with Filmfare, the leggy lass talked about how 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' came to her at a phase when she was looking for a solid challenge. "Everyone's career is this one long and amazing journey. It's full of these exciting moments and what you make of these situations in life is what matters the most. As far as 'xXx' is concerned it came to me at a phase when I was looking for a solid challenge. The biggest challenge for me was moving out of my comfort zone," Deepika revealed. The dimpled beauty also said she thrives on challenges and hence, being in an unfamiliar territory was 'exciting' for her. "I guess, as actors over a period of time we tend to get used to our environment. I thrive on challenges. I love being thrown in new situations and finding myself in an unfamiliar territory was exciting, said the 31-year-old and added, "I had to work with a director who I'd never even met before. I had to perform in an entirely alien setup with new actors and a new kind of energy. Even their style of acting is so different from ours. The way they approach every scene is so distinct from the way we do." (ANI)
