Deepika Padukone is playing Ranveer’s onscreen wife in ’83, that is, Romi Dev. Talking about it, a source had said to Pinkvilla, “Deepika has been locked for Kabir Khan’s next film ’83.
The film that revolves around India’s 1983 World Cup victory, will primarily focus on Kapil Dev’s story. The film has an ensemble cast being lead by Ranveer and now, DP too has given her go ahead to the film.”
Deepika Padukone said in an interview with Bombay times “I am so glad that Kabir came to me with it. This happened a couple of months ago when he was still casting the boys for the film. It’s just that I was busy with Chhappak (her production debut, which wrapped up recently) and we were waiting for the right moment to make the announcement.”
Talking about working with husband Ranveer and how the dynamics would change between them post their wedding, DP replied, “When you are in the business of movies, you are playing a character.
Of course, all of this is yet to play out, but at the end of the day, you are essaying a role, and at that point, you are not thinking whether your co-actor is your husband, brother or someone you know closely. All you try to do is, be honest in that moment.
The personal equation doesn’t spill over into the workspace. I can’t think of anyone else who could do justice to the role (of Kapil Dev), but if there was someone else playing him in the film, and not Ranveer, I would still do my part.
This isn’t coming from a personal equation, but from my passion and enthusiasm for the film.” This is a huge news for the DeepVeer fans because, it has been a while since they have seen the two share the screen space in a romantic setting.
