Sachin Tendulkar wrote a testimonial for Virat, it read, “The U-19 World Cup in 2008 was very important for India, as it would define the next bunch of youngsters who would go on to represent the nation. That was the first time I watched this young, passionate player lead India. Today Virat Kohli is a household name and a champion in cricket. Even back then, his hunger for runs and consistency was remarkable, something that has become the hallmark of his game."

Vin Diesel, Deepika’s co-star from her Hollywood debut xXx: The Return of Xander Cage wrote Deepika’s profile and praised her immensely. Vin wrote, “When Deepika Padukone came in to read for one of the Fast and the Furious films, I knew instantly I was in the presence of someone very special. As soon as she entered the room, there was a synchronicity, a synergy, a chemistry—it promised great things to come. Her schedule didn’t work for that movie, but I never gave up. She was the first role we cast in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. She said, ‘I want to do this movie, but if I do, you have to come to India.’ Thank God I made that deal.”

Speculations are rife whether Deepika will return to the xXx franchise and will star in its fourth installment. However, no official announcements are made but looking at the fact that Vin wrote her testimony indications are strong that she might reprise her role of Serena Unger.
