- Deepika and Djokovic played an exhibition tennis doubles match in 2014
- Two years later they were photographed exiting an LA hotspot
- Deepika Padukone was filming xXx 3 at that time in Los Angeles
Last year in March, Deepika Padukone was photographed with Novak Djokovic at a Los Angeles hotspot and the foreign media initially did not recognize the Bollywood actress mentioning her as 'Djokovic's Female Companion' in their headline. After a Twitter fury from Deepika's fans, the tabloid made the necessary changes. Deepika was in LA to shoot for her maiden Hollywood film xXx: Return Of Xander Cage, co-starring Vin Diesel.

At that time, Djokovic told the media that Deepika was a friend of his Jelena, who was absent from the rendezvous, reported Daily Mail. We know that Deepika and her family socialized with Jelena Djokovic during the Wimbledon finals in July 2015.
But even before that, Deepika played an exhibition tennis doubles match with Djokovic in 2014's International Premier Tennis League tournament. Roger Federer and Bollywood actors Aamir Khan, Riteish Deshmukh were also there.
