This trailer has a lot more of Padukone's character – Serena Unger.

And one thing people really, really loved about it was the fact that Padukone maintained her Indian accent.

Looping the new XXX teaser that premiered yesterday. Not even watching it, just taking in the joyous sound of a normal Indian accent on loop

The best thing about @deepikapadukone in the xXx trailer is her natural, Indian accent! Zero fakeness. Total turn on! #xXxDeepikaTrailer

In a time where actors change accents to sell out to Western media it was refreshing 2 hear @deepikapadukone not put a twang to her dialect
