Deepika Padukone has been nominated in Teen Choice Awards in the Choice Action Movie Actress category for essaying the role of xXx agent Serena Unger, who helps Xander Cage in saving the world in the DJ Caruso directed film. 

The official Twitter page for Teen Choice Awards posted a photo of the nominations.

Her co-stars Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose, who had key roles in the movie, are also nominated. Others competing in the category are Michelle Rodriguez for Fate of the Furious and Kaya Scodelario for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Deepika's co-star and film's lead actor Vin Diesel has also been nominated for Choice Action Movie Actor. DJ Caruso recently confirmed that Deepika will return for the sequel of XxX: Return of Xander Cage

Deepika's character in her first Hollywood film was much loved by her fans, particularly the fact that she got to do a lot of stunts, even though action star Vin Diesel was headlining the movie.

DJ Caruso, director of the movie, confirmed on social media to a fan that Deepika will be reprising her role in the sequel to the movie.
