Deepika, Ranveer Singh to play married couple in upcoming 83
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have exciting news for fans as the Bollywood’s power couple will be sharing the screen as a married couple in real and reel life.
While Ranveer Singh has been busy shooting for Kabir Khan’s upcoming movie on the life of veteran cricketer Kapil Dev, Deepika has been taken into the cast as Dev’s wife Romia Bhatia.
“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,” she said in an interview.
Speaking about her role, the 33-year-old actress said she will have to go out of her way to understand the role “I intend to connect and spend some time with her before I start filming to be able to understand her perspective better”.
“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.”
This will mark as the fourth film that the two will appear in together as they have previously shared screens in Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat.
The film will release in cinemas on April 5, 2019.
