Deepika Padukone REVEALS she intends to do THIS to prep for Kapil Dev’s wife’s role in Ranveer Singh’s ‘83
After wrapping up her ambitious project, Chhapaak with Meghna Gulzar, Deepika Padukone is off to London to spend time with Ranveer Singh who is shooting for his next film, ‘83.
The film is based on the life of the legendary cricketer who managed to make Indian Team win the 1983 World Cup. In the film, Deepika will be seen playing Kapil Dev’s wife, Romi. Not just this, Deepika is also co-producing the film. While this will be the fourth film which Deepika and Ranveer will do together, it will be her first one as his wife.
In a recent interview with Bombay Times, Deepika revealed that in order to gear up for her role as Kapil Dev’ wife, Romi, she intends to spend time with her and connect with her.
Deepika mentioned that since her father was a sports person, they have known Kapil Dev and his family for a long time. She also revealed that she has met Kapil Dev’s wife a couple of times including at her reception. But, she wants to know her perspective to play her with justice on screen. Deepika stated, “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.”
Meanwhile, Deepika and Ranveer will be seen together for the first time in a film after their wedding and hence, it is going to make fans even more excited.
Their past association in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s films like Goliyon Ki Rasleela-Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat have been extremely successful. ‘83 is helmed by Kabir Khan and has a huge star cast including Pankaj Tripathi, Jiiva, Ammy Virk, Sahil Khattar, Jatin Sarna and more. The film is being shot in Scotland and England. ‘83 is slated to release on April 10, 2020.
