Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone created buzz when she flew down to USA last month. It was reported that the actress met Hollywood actor Vin Diesel and signed her first Hollywood film "XXX: The Return of Xander Cage."

Adding fuel to fire was a photo that she posted with Diesel with the logo of the movie franchise "XXX" in the background. Now, buzz has it that Deepika will share screen space with international stars Jet Li and Tony Jaa as well, according to Deccan Chronicle.

There have been rumours that these two popular actors will also star in "XXX: The Return of Xander Cage". Jet Li and Tony Jaa have worked in several Hollywood action films and if all these reports are correct, then it will be a grand launch for Deepika in the international film industry.

Jet Li is a Chinese actor who has worked in many Hollywood films like "Romeo Must Die " (2000), "The Forbidden Kingdom" (2008) and all three of "The Expendables" films. He also played the main villain in "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" (2008).

Tony Jaa, who has worked with Diesel in "Furious 7", achieved international fame with all the three of "Ong-Bak" instalments. He has also been featured in both the parts of "Tom-Yum-Goong" (also called "Warrior King" or "The Protector").

Amidst all the rumours, Deepika has remained tight lipped regarding her debut in Hollywood. She had earlier turned down Diesel's offer to share screen space in "Fast and Furious 7", but this time the actress has reportedly bagged the international movie offer.

In 2015, Deepika appeared in three films – "Piku", "Tamasha" and "Bajirao Mastani" -- and captured hearts with her brilliant performance in all these flicks. However, this year, the actress seems to have taken a break from Bollywood, as no reports of her signing any film has come to light.
