Deepika, who just wrapped up Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapak few days back is super happy to join the cast of 83. She thanked filmmaker Kabir Khan for making her a part of 83. She wrote on her Twitter handle, “& on to the next…Thank You @kabirkhankk for this incredible honour! #RomiDev #Day1 @83thefilm @RanveerOfficial”
Kabir Khan’s 83 revolves around India’s victory at 1983 world cup against West Indies. Ranveer will be seen portraying the legendary Kapil Dev and Deepika his wife, Romi Dev. On collaborating with husband Ranveer in 83, Deepika told a leading daily, “The personal equation doesn’t spill over into the workspace. I can’t think of anyone else who could do justice to the role of Kapil Dev but if there was someone else playing him in the film and not Ranveer, I would still do my part. This isn’t coming from a personal equation but from my passion and enthusiasm for the film.”
The superstar further said, “When you are in the business of movies, you are playing a character. Of course, all of this is yet to play out but at the end of the day, you are essaying a role and at that point, you are not thinking whether your co-star is your husband, brother or someone you know closely. All they do is, be honest in that moment.”
Kabir Khan’s multi-starrer 83 is scheduled to release on April 10, 2020. Are you excited to see Ranveer and Deepika together on screen once again, we are!
