Deepika's 'xXx: The Return of Xander Cage' co-star, Vin Diesel, who wrote her piece in the feature, said, "So often in the entertainment industry we deal in stereotypes, and people get stuck in certain markets. Deepika is the best Earth has to offer. She's not just here to represent India; she's here to represent the world."
The list, now in its fifteenth year, recognizes the activism, innovation and achievement of the world's most influential individuals. Other actresses to make it to the list this year are Nicole Kidman, Gal Gadot, Greta Gerwig and Lena Waithe among others.
