Deepika Padukone will play Ranveer Singh’s wife onscreen as well. The two will star as Kapil Dev and his wife Romi in 83. Actress Deepika Padukone has confirmed that she will be playing Ranveer Singh’s wife in the upcoming film ’83.
While Ranveer will play ace cricketer Kapil Dev in the film, Deepika will play his wife Romi. Based on India’s cricket World Cup win in England in 1983, the film will be Deepika and Ranveer’s first collaboration after their wedding. Previously these two were paired for ‘Ramleela’, ‘Bhaji Rao Mastani’ and ‘Padmavaat.’
Deepika said their dynamic as actors remain unchanged after marriage. “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,” she said.
