She said, “I actually auditioned for ‘Furious 7’ about two or three years ago and for whatever reason that didn’t work out and I think people remember me for that audition. Everyone talks about that chemistry and people remember me from that and then, about a year ago, I get a call from Paramount saying that they are casting for this film and I flew down and met DJ, my director Caruso, and then Vin found out in Los Angeles that I was in Toronto. So overnight, luckily I had a visa, and he said, ‘I want her to come and see me’.”

“So, overnight I flew down from Toronto to Los Angeles to see Vin and suddenly in the middle of the night we are doing this forty-five minute photo-shoot. Professional, with lights, with this and that, I was like what is going on! Because I didn’t know if I got the part, I still don’t know if I got the part. He just… we got into this really serious photo-shoot. I don’t know if you guys have seen the picture, and that was it.”

Deepika was also confused when Diesel made the news of her casting public with a poster.

She said, “He just put it up and I said, I hope you know that if you put up that means I’m doing this movie. He still didn’t say anything. He just put it up.”
