The focus is on Kapil Dev and his team bringing home the World Cup. Ranveer plays Kapil Dev. While Deepika playing his wife Romi sounds tempting, it’s just not true. Kapil Dev’s wife’s role will be very limited in this film and Deepika is a huge brand. She wouldn’t do any film just because her husband is in it.”

Sara Ali Khan, daughter of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, has already marked her name in golden words in the industry with just two films to her credit. With her first film Kedarnath, Sara Ali Khan made sure that she rule people’s hearts and with Simmba, she became the ruling queen of box office. While Sara proved her acting mettle with the films, she is often quizzed about nepotism and the benefits that come with it. There is no denying that the actress has answered all the questions related to the topic with great dignity and has always maintained that she realizes nepotism exists but star kids also have to prove themselves in order to make their mark.
Recently while talking to Hindustan Times, Sara said, "Some comments that I get from people are politically incorrect to quote because one of them said, “We are glad that nepotism has brought people like Sara Ali Khan”. That is a huge compliment because I am aware of nepotism and the unfairness that it might come with. I am aware that I have access to more things in the industry than other people do. But, I don’t think that it’s pressure."
