Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh tied the knot in November last year after dating for six long years. It was an intimate affair which took place at Italy's Lake Como. Since their wedding, their fans are eagerly waiting to see them on screen once again. So, here the wait is over as the actress has confirmed and made the announcement that she is very much the part of the film '83 and will be essaying the role of Kapil Dev's wife Romi. In the film, Ranveer will be seen in the lead role of Kapil Dev.
Recently, Deepika was asked if she wishes to spend time with Kapil Dev's wife Romi, to this Deepika replied, "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 actress was also asked about taking unconventional subjects like producing Chhappak and co-producing '83, to this, she said, "I will always be true and authentic with my choices. Earlier, it would be my choices just an actor, today I have an opportunity to extend that scope into production, as well. The films I do, as an actor, producer, or both, are an extension of my personality and who I am."
Deepika talking about the film has also 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."
The film also stars Jiiva, Ammy Virk, Harrdy Sandhu, Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Sahil Khattar and Chirag Patil in the pivotal role.
