Deepika Padukone is competing with Wonder Woman Gal Gadot

It’s all amicable though, we swear

Deepika Padukone has been shuttling between international red carpets and her movie commitments in Mumbai, her passport probably plastered cover-to-cover in ink, but here’s where life gets sweet: Her debut Hollywood movie xXx: Return of Xander Cage has earned the attention of the Teen Choice Awards jury who’ve, in turn, awarded her a nomination for Choice Action Movie Actress.

Starring opposite Vin Diesel, the movie had Deepika first parroting her best American accent and later, parading an envy-inducing wardrobe for the promotions spree. Let us not forget the discoball Naeem Khan gown that she favoured for the Mumbai premiere. (Check out all images here.)

The catch, though? Deepika has been nominated alongside Gal Gadot who has currently held the internet captive with her stellar work in Wonder Woman. Going up against a superhuman boss woman for your debut Hollywood nomination sounds tough, but we did warn you that it’s been a rollercoaster year.
