Deepika Padukone is playing the role of Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev in Kabir Khan’s Ranveer Singh starrer ’83. Ranveer is playing Kapil Dev, who led the Indian cricket team to victory in the 1983 World Cup, and DeePee is playing his better half. Though she has a small role in the film, she says it’s special.
Talking about her role in the sports drama, DeePee said, “Kabir thought of me for the film. It’s a very small role but it’s special because I feel that the role of a spouse or family isn’t always given enough credit. When athletes perform at international platforms and reach great heights, their families get very little recognition. So keeping that in mind I wanted to do the film.”
This is Deepika and Ranveer’s first film together post their marriage. ’83 also stars Saqib Saleem, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Ammy Virk, Harrdy Sandhu, Pankaj Tripathi, Jiiva, Boman Irani and Sahil Khattar among others. The film is slated to release on April 10, 2020 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
