This is why Deepika Padukone chose to play the role of Romi Dev in ‘83

If we list down the most popular on-screen couples of Bollywood, one of the top names will be Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. Fans have admired the chemistry between them in films like Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani, both directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Once again, we will be seeing this on and off screen pair in Ranveer’s upcoming film '83, directed by Kabir Khan.

Deepika will be portraying the role of Romi Dev, wife of former captain of Indian cricket team Kapil Dev, played by Singh himself. She talks about the role in an interview with a news portal. She says, “Kabir thought of me for the film. It is a very small role but a very special role because I feel like the role of a spouse, of family, is not always given enough credit when you look at athletes when they win on an international stage. Aise uchaiyo tak jab pohochte hai, toh family ko bohot kam recognition milta hai, so keeping that in mind, I wanted to do the film.”

Apart from ’83, Deepika will be seen in Meghna Gulzar directorial Chhapaak portraying the role of Laxmi Aggarwal, an acid attack survivor. Chhapaak is all set to release on January 10, 2020 while ’83 will be releasing three months later, on April 10, 2020.
