Ahead of their film release, Deepika Padukone and Vin Diesel have been taking to social media to promote their film xXx: Return of Xander Cage. They’ve praised each other in the past and are seem like pretty close friends. Deepika affirmed this in an interview with Rajeev Masand for Vogue India and reportedly said that Vin and his sister Samantha are to her in Hollywood what Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan were to her when she started out in Bollywood. She went on to say that Vin is the first person she rings whenever she is in Los Angeles.

Here’s what she reportedly said:

Vin and his sister, Samantha, are to me what Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan were when I started out here. They are family. I was a bundle of nerves on my first day on set because I was so far away from home and everyone was new and everything felt unfamiliar. But early on I realised that the process is exactly the same. People are different. If you can make the relationships work, it’s all smooth sailing.

Aww! How cute 🙂
