Heartthrob Deepika Padukone is all set to share the screen again with her hubby, Ranveer Singh. This will be their fourth film together after Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani, and Padmaavat. The husband-wife duo will be playing the reel life couple in the film ’83. Deepika has confirmed that she will be part of the film. As she will be playing the role of Kapil Dev‘s wife, Roomi. Therefore she said,” My parents have known their family for many years. So I feel I know her and hope that she is proud and happy with the film. I intend to connect and spend some time with her before I start filming to be able to understand her perspective better.”
The film is directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Reliance Entertainment. Ranveer also stayed at Kapil’s house for 10 days. So that he could prepare for his role better. The actor has gone through immense training to learn different aspects of the sport. Simmba actor and his team went to Dharamshala together.
Ranveer also shared his experience, training with Kapil on Instagram.
Have a look:
The film is based on the 1983 world cup. Where India won its first ever world cup cricket match under Kapil Dev’s captaincy. The team won against West Indies.
In an interview, when asked about the film Deepika Padukone said, “I am so glad that Kabir Khan 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 and we were waiting for the right moment to make the announcement.”
She also stated that she would be doing the film even if it was being played by anyone other than her husband. However, she said, “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”. The actress is also co-producing the film.
We are sure that both the duo are going to justify the roles. As they always had. The film cast includes Saqib Saleem, R Badree, Harrdy Sandhu, Chirag Patil, Pankaj Tripathi, Ammy Virk and Saahil Khattar in prominent roles.
