BizAsiaLive.com reported some time back that Deepika Padukone could be seen playing Kapil Dev’s wife in the upcoming ’83’ which would see her share the big screen with hubby Ranveer Singh for the first time since they tied the knot. While there was speculation that she’d rejected the role, it’s now being said that she hasn’t decided yet on whether she will be taking it up.
A source explained to Asian Age, “She has been approached for the role. Ranveer who is ‘living in’ with Kapil Dev at the moment at his house to observe his mannerisms and style has also discussed the possibility of Deepika being a part of the project if her dates permit. Ranveer has also been observing Romi Dev to check on her mannerisms so that he can update Deepika regarding the same”.
Sajid Nadiadwala has also been brought on board to co-produce the film, which will extensively be shot in the UK.
Padukone is currently in Cannes.
