We were all excited to see another one of our favourite Bollywood actresses on one of our favourite talk shows. First it was Priyanka Chopra who made a kickass appearance on The Ellen Show, and now it’s Deepika Padukone! Her first Hollywood movie, XXX: Return of Xander Cage, released last week, where she co-starred with the incredible Vin Diesel. Naturally, she was there to not only promote her movie, but to talk about it, like people normally do on talk shows. Unfortunately, she left us disappointed.
Ellen did most of the talking during the short segment, and when Deepika did talk, it just felt off. It began with her talking about when she first decided to get into the movie business. Then, she moved on to how she got the part for this movie. And it was… boring. Did you ever think The Ellen Show could be boring? When Priyanka Chopra made her appearance, we loved her! She was funny, she took a tequila shot, and she was perfectly at ease. Deepika was not. Maybe she needed some time to sink into it since this was her first talk show appearance in America. Either way, she was uncomfortable, and when she talked about Vin Diesel, it was weird. She was probably trying to make a joke, but saying that she has kids with Vin Diesel in her head just doesn’t cut it. It will be disappointing, but you can still watch it right here. Be prepared though.
