Diesel was also welcomed by Gang of Desi Lady Royal Enfield Riders who were dressed in red saris and yellow turbans while they sported sturdy riding boots and rode astride Royal Enfield motorcycles. The ladies applied ‘tilak’ on the forehead of Diesel while traditional Maratha folk music was played by a group of local musicians.

Following the successful running of ‘xXx’ released in 2002 and ‘xXx: State of the Union’ in 2005, the third instalment, ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ has been released in India, ahead of global release on January 19, 2017. It stars star Ruby Rose, Samuel L Jackson, Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa. Diesel will be co-starred by Deepika Padukone who will be making her Hollywood debut in the upcoming movie.

Vin Diesel plays the role of extreme athlete Xander Cage / xXx, as he has played in the first movie of the xXx franchise which released in 2002. Directed by D. J. Caruso, this is the third movie in the xXx franchise. As has been the case with previous two editions, this one too is high on adrenaline. Vin Diesel and his co-stars are seen performing new stunts, majority of which feature cars and bikes.

The plot revolves around how Xander is brought out of self-imposed exile by Samuel L Jackson to take down deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) and his team who are about to recover a deadly weapon called Pandora’s Box.
