While Ranveer Singh’s look as Kapil Dev from his upcoming film ‘83’ was released by the makers a few months back, fans were waiting for Deepika Padukone’s look. Now, the first look of Deepika as Romi Dev has been released. ‘83’ is based on the Indian cricket team’s win at the 1983 World Cup. Ranveer Singh is playing the lead role of Kapil Dev, who was the captain of the winning team.
In the picture, which features Deepika Padukone with Ranveer Singh, the actress is seen sporting short hair. She can be seen wearing a high-neck top, while Ranveer is wearing the official team blazer. The couple is smiling while looking at each other.
The queen of hearts Deepika Padukone took to social media to share the new look. Sharing the photo she wrote, “To be able to play a small part in a film that captures one of the most iconic moments in sporting history has been an absolute honor. I’ve seen very closely the role a wife plays in the success of her husband’s professional and personal aspirations in my mother and 83 for me in many ways is an ode to every woman who puts her husband’s dream before her own…”
Versatile star Ranveer Singh also took to social media to share the picture. He wrote, “The Wind beneath my Wings. The Heart of the Hurricane .”
Kabir Khan’s film ‘83’ was completed in October last year. The film started making buzz even before its shooting began in May last year. The entire cast of the film flew to Dharamshala to get trained under professional cricketers like Kapil Dev and Mohinder Amarnath.
Apart from Ranveer and Deepika, ‘83’also features Pankaj Tripathi and Boman Irani in pivotal roles. ‘83’ is scheduled to release on April 10, this year.
Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh is also busy working on other projects ‘Sooryavanshi’, ‘Takht’.
