After months of rumours, it now seems certain that Ranveer Singh will team-up with his wife, Deepika Padukone in the cricket drama ’83’.
As reported earlier on BizAsiaLive.com, Padukone has been linked to the project but no concrete word has come through. However, PinkVilla today reports that the couple will be paired opposite each other in the Kabir Khan directorial. The report adds that, Padukone will not only star in the film, but she will co-produce it also.
A source told the publication, “Deepika has been locked for Kabir Khan’s next film ’83. The film that revolves around India’s 1983 World Cup victory, will primarily focus on Kapil Dev’s story. The film has an ensemble cast being lead by Ranveer and now, DP too has given her go ahead to the film.”
The source added, “Deepika has a good role because she plays Kapil’s wife Romi Bhatia who was also a pageant winner. In fact, as far as the story goes, she had left the stadium after India started losing the wickets. But when she heard that they are on the verge of winning the World Cup, she came back to the stadium. That part is extremely dramatic. Also, the film will delve into the relationship between the husband and wife, their love story.”
