Brazil and Barcelona striker Neymar will share screen space with Deepika Padukone in the movie XXX: The Return of Xander Cage.
Last week, Deepika Padukone returned to the city after wrapping up the shoot for her holiday plans.
Neymar, who has chosen to represent Brazil in the upcoming Olympics while skipping Copa America is apparently in the states for some commitments.
Neymar has shot for a small but key role.
The entire unit was excited about having him on the sets.
The Barcelona star has been spending time in the United States, and attended a New York Mets game recently.
The footballer has some important scenes with Diesel and other actors in the film.
The announcement was made by Vin Diesel on his instagram account after Neymar completed his first day's shoot.
