Deepika Padukone to play Ranveer Singh’s wife in Kapil Dev biopic 83

Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s collaboration in the upcoming Kapil Dev biopic was much in the headlines for a while but it was said that the actress won’t be seen in the film. But looks like things have changed now and fans’ favourite couple Deepveer will be seen in Kabir Khan’s 83 as man and wife. Going by the latest reports in Pinkvilla, it is said that Deepika Padukone will be seen playing the role of Ranveer Singh’s wife Romi Bhatia in Kapil Dev biopic and will also co-produce it.

The publication quoted a source saying, “Deepika has been locked for Kabir Khan’s next film 83... The film has an ensemble cast being lead by Ranveer and now, DP too has given her go ahead to the film.” The source further added, “Deepika has a good role because she plays Kapil’s wife Romi Bhatia who was also a pageant winner. In fact, as far as the story goes, she had left the stadium after India started losing the wickets. But when she heard that they are on the verge of winning the World Cup, she came back to the stadium. That part is extremely dramatic. Also, the film will delve into the relationship between the husband and wife, their love story.”

Kabir Khan’s 83 will mark the fourth collaboration between the couple as they are earlier seen in Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and her last film Padmaavat. This will also be their first film after they got married in November last year. On the related note, Deepika Padukone has recently turned producer with her upcoming Bollywood film Chhapaak. In the film directed by Meghna Gulzar, Deepika will be seen stepping into the shoes of a real life acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.
