first_img India Today Web Desk New DelhiJune 10, 2019UPDATED: June 10, 2019 12:45 IST Kapil Dev, Romi Bhatia and Deepika Padukone.After playing a couple on screen in the 2013 film Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, husband-wife duo Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone will once again treat their fans with their on-screen chemistry in their upcoming film 83. Ranveer Singh is playing the role of Kapil Dev in 83 and Deepika Padukone is set to play Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Bhatia in the film.Like Ranveer, who practiced with Kapil Dev and spent 10 days at his house in Delhi to get into the skin of the character, Deepika too will spend some time with Romi to understand her point of view.Like Kapil Dev, Deepika’s father, Prakash Padukone, former Indian badminton player, is also one of the renowned faces of the sports fraternity and the actress’s family share a good relationship with Kapil Dev and his family. Therefore, Deepika has known Kapil and Romi for many years.Talking to Bombay Times, Deepika said, “There isn’t a lot of material available on her. I have met her a few times, including our wedding reception, and I have interacted with her socially over the years. I am also referring to whatever material the director’s team has sent across to me. My parents have known their family for many years. So, I feel I know her and hope that she is proud and happy with the film. I intend to connect and spend some time with her before I start filming to be able to understand her perspective better.”advertisementDeepika and Ranveer were last seen together in 2018 film Padmaavat. Though they were not paired romantically in the film, they both made a mark with their respective performances in the film.Talking about if they take inspiration from each other, Deepika said, “Yes, I think so. We have worked in three films together, and they have all been successful. Individually, we are strong and different personalities, and when put together, we know how to feed off each other’s energy and that’s the beauty of it. I think Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela was a classic example of that. It’s exciting and challenging at the same time.”Apart from starring 83, Deepika will also star in Chhapaak, a film based on the life of acid attack survivour Laxmi Agarwal, and is also producing the film.Talking about taking up unconventional subjects, Deepika told the daily, “I will always be true and authentic with my choices. Earlier, it would be my choices just as an actor, today I have an opportunity to extend that scope into production, as well. The films I do, as an actor, producer, or both, are an extension of my personality and who I am.”83 will mark Ranveer and Deepika’s fourth film together. The couple first shared screen space in Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela, after that they were seen in Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat. Interestingly, all the three films have been directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.In an earlier interview, when Ranveer was asked about his reaction on being offered the role of Kapil Dev, he said, “I was born at the time when cricket was big time. When Kabir Sahab (director Kabir Khan) had come to me and said that there will be a film on 83, I was like finally. And when he was narrating it to me, I was like woooh. It is not a story just about cricket but a human story.”The film 83 essays Kapil’s captaincy in leading the Indian cricket team to defeat the West Indies in the World Cup final in 1983. The film is directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Reliance Entertainment.Also Read | Deepika Padukone on playing Ranveer Singh’s wife in 83: This isn’t coming from a personal equationALSO READ | Will Deepika Padukone play Ranveer Singh’s wife in 83?ALSO READ | Kapil Dev on Ranveer Singh’s 83: India was not ready to make sports films 20 years agoALSO READ | 83: Ranveer Singh to live with Kapil Dev in Delhi for 10 daysALSO WATCH | Ranveer Singh makes Delhi dance to Gully Boy at India Today Conclave 2019Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
