After making a recent appearance at The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Deepika Padukone has now debuted on The Late Late Show with James Corden. She was there with her co-star from “xXx: Return of Xander Cage”, Vin Diesel.
And the videos and photos that have been shared on social media shows, both Deepika and Vin had a great time.
Vin Diesel and Deepika Padukone’s lungi dance in India went viral and Corden was all agog what exactly is lungi dance, although he pronounced it ‘langi’.
As deepika explained, she had a funny anecdote to reveal too, “A lungi is a garment men wear in India. In a film I did two years ago, we did this song called Lungi Dance. But our friend Vin here thinks it is a classic, traditional style of dance of India. He did his interviews very seriously in India where he went on to compare breakdance with lungi dance and I am like no, it is not a traditional dance.”
Vin interrupted and said, “I thought that was a parallel.” To which Deepika replied, “He’s doing all these serious interviews and I’m like…(we are dead!).” It was obvious that Lungi Dance will happen next. Corden asked Deepika to show him a few steps and offered her his jacket in place of a lungi. He also tweeted, “There has never been a better use of @reggiewatts’ jacket. Look at those moves!”
From helping James learn typical Bollywood dance steps, and use jackets in a fun way, Deepika does it all. Interestingly, she even made James tie a jacket around his waist, and do ‘lungi dance’.
