Fans went crazy after knowing that Deepika Padukone will be joining the cast of ’83 alongside hubby Ranveer Singh. Deepika Padukone is successfully done shooting for Chhapaak, directed by ace filmmaker, Meghna Gulzar and is now all set to play Kapil Dev’s wife, Romi in ’83, where Kapil Dev is being played by Ranveer Singh. This will be the fourth film where the two will be seen together! The film is based on the life of legendary cricketer Kapil Dev, who managed to led the Indian Team to victory in the 1983 World Cup.
Deepika Padukone plays every character with conviction and we know she gives her 100 per cent in every movie. In order to do justice to her character Romi, Deepika, in an interview with Bombay Times, revealed that she intends to spend time more with her and connect with her. Deepika’s father, Prakash Padukone was a sports person and knows Kapil Dev and his family for a long time. The actress also revealed that she has briefly met Kapil Dev’s wife, Romi a couple of times, including at her reception. The perspective is what Deepika is seeking in order to play her character on screen. Deepika is a perfectionist and will definitely nail this character as well!
Deepika said, “There isn’t a lot of material available on her. I have met her a few times, including our wedding reception, and I have interacted with her socially over the years. I am also referring to whatever material the director’s team has sent across to me. 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 movie has a huge star cast including Pankaj Tripathi, Jiiva, Ammy Virk, Sahil Khattar, Jatin Sarna and more. The film is currently being shot in Scotland and England. ’83 is releasing on April 10, 2020.
