Currency Exchange with Visa Direct Transactions


I wanted to know if I'm initiating payment from Visa direct and use my Indian bank (INR) card to send money to US bank (USD) account/card. How will the currency exchange happen? Does Origination bank do the currency exchange or is it the Receiving institution or does Visa do the currency exchange while send the money to US bank account/card?
