Deepika Padukone impressed us all with her portrayal of Serena Unger in her Hollywood debut xXx: Return of Xander Cage alongside Vin Diesel but, it had more to do with the fact that she landed a role in the xXx franchise rather than her on-screen presence. Recently, Director DJ Caruso confirmed that Deepika Padukone’s Serena Unger will be featured in the sequel to the movie, xXx 4, and as will Hollywood actresses Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose.

While we are just as excited as all of her fans to see her kick ass in xXx 4, there were some issues with xXx: Return of Xander Cage that we seriously hope don’t see Deepika repeating.

Deepika Padukone as Serena Unger in the action flick xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

1) Wooden acting

Not saying that Deepika is a bad actress, she never would have landed the role if she were but, her portrayal of Serena Unger was pretty mechanical. Throughout the film, Deepika was mainly just speaking lines like a kindergartner forced to recite a poem in front of the class which made it very hard to wish to see more of her.

2) Awful chemistry with Vin Diesel

While the trailer of xXx: Return of Xander Cage suggested that Deepika will be delivering some steamy action (besides the real action) with Vin but, the two did not seem to have any chemistry whatsoever. If Deepika’s gonna be working with Vin again, she definitely needs to bring in a little more heat on screen.xXx Return of Xander Cage Film

3) Not just a side-chick

Deepika’s Serena might have looked appealing to many thanks to all the knife-throwing, grenade-blowing action but, otherwise, she had no role at all. Serena was basically just Xander Cage’s sidekick who ends up getting romantically involved with her “hero” and all’s well from then on. Hopefully, Deepika Padukone’s character in the sequel will have more to do than to be just another side character that is only useful when the plot demands.
