Ranveer Singh shared this picture on his Twitter page and wrote, "*drum roll* All smiles as All-star @deepikapadukone joins the #83squad !!! @83thefilm. @kabirkhankk."
Talking to Bombay Times, Deepika had asserted, "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."
A source was earlier quoted as saying, "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 their love story."
Directed by Kabir Khan, 83 will hit the screens on April 10, 2020.
A couple of days ago, Deepika Padukone had confirmed portraying the role of Kapil Dev's wife, Roma Bhatia in Ranveer Singh starrrer 83. While Ranveer plays the character of legendary cricketer Kapil Dev, it would be really amazing to see his wife portraying his reel wife on silver screen. For the unversed, 83 will be first collaboration of Ranveer and Deepika post their marriage and we're here with the first official picture of Deepika from the sets of 83.
