Deepika Padukone will be seen as Romi Dev in ’83’ and this means that she is going to be reuniting on screen with hubby Ranveer Singh who essays the character of Kapil Dev for the film. The actress has recently opened up about the experience.
“It was nice to work with Ranveer in a slightly more realistic setting. Not having to mouth such intense dialogue with that kind of language like we did on three films. It was refreshing. In fact, we had to remind ourselves that ‘this is the same actor that I’ve worked with’. “The characters are completely different, the era is completely different. The costume, the sets are so, so different and even refreshing. We both looked at each other and said, ‘wow, we should do stuff like this more often together'”, said Padukone, according to Deccan Chronicle.
She further spoke about what made her take up the film, “The reason I wanted to do this film is because I’ve seen what an important support system my mother has been in my father’s life as an athlete and her contribution to his success. I saw many similarities when it came to Romi and Kapil Dev. While ’83’ is really the three week journey from the time they left India to the time they won the World Cup, there are smaller moments of their personal side of their personality as well which I thought was very exciting”.
The film is set to release this year, directed by Kabir Khan.
