While Deepika Padukone surprised all by sharing a photo of her hugging Hollywood star Vin Diesel, Akshay Kumar and two other "Housefull 3" actors have made a funny representation of the same picture.

Akshay Kumar shared a photo on Twitter in which he, Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh are seen posing with a Vin Diesel look-alike mannequin in almost the same way that Deepika posed with the Hollywood actor.

Akshay also added a funny caption to the photo saying, "Since Vin Diesel is busy with @deepikapadukone, we at #Housefull3 are making do with Vin Petrol (sic)."

Deepika first shared the picture on Twitter in which she was seen hugging Vin Diesel and the logo of "XXX" series was visible on the background.

Soon speculations were made that the "Bajirao Mastani" actress might have bagged a role in the Hollywood project. And to validate the buzz even more, Vin himself shared another photo on Instagram, he and Deepika being in a single frame.

Moreover, Deepika's co-actor in "Piku" also congratulated the actress on Facebook for her Hollywood debut.

"A big congratulation to our favourite #Piku for her smashing #Hollywooddebut with #VinDiesel @DeepikaPadukone (sic)," posted Irrfan.

Meanwhile, Deepika will be seen in the movie "Bajirao Mastani" which also features Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra.

The film is slated to be released on 18 December.
