Shooting of Chhapaak by Meghna Gulzar has been completed by Deepika Padukone recently where she is casted opposite Vikrant Massey. The movie is about an acid attack survivor named Laxmi Aggarwal. Through this movie, Deepika has decided to start producing also. According to Deepika, it is a story of ultimate valour. So, we are certainly excited for Deepika. However, there is good news. It seems that Deepika is indeed a part of Ranveer Singh starrer ’83’ by Kabir Khan.
Still, official confirmation has not made about Deepika in ’83’. However, Deepika has confirmed during an interview that she is playing the character of Romi Bhatia, Kapil Dev’s wife in Kabir Khan’s 83. She has said “I am so glad that Kabir (Khan) came to me with it. This happened a couple of months ago when he was still casting the boys for the film. It’s just that I was busy with Chhappak and we were waiting for the right moment to make the announcement.”
So, Deepika will be playing Ranveer Singh’s onscreen wife in the movie. According to Deepika, she has signed the movie regardless of Ranveer in the movie. About being part of ’83, Deepika has 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-actor is your husband, brother or someone you know closely. All you try to do is, be honest in that moment.”
Later on, Padmavaat actress has added “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.”
Release of ’83 is scheduled on 10th April, 2020 which is produced by Madhu Mantena, Vishnu Induri, Sajid Nadiadwala and Kabir Khan.
