Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone will reunite onscreen after Padmaavat in Kabir Khan directorial ’83. The actors will essay the role of former cricketer Kapil Dev and his wife Romi Dev. And the first look is out.
Ranveer Singh is dressed in a suit with the signature mustache and dense hair. The actor is adoringly smiling at Deepika Padukone who is dressed in all black while sporting a bob cut in the first look. Deepika Padukone shares, “To be able to play a small but significant 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.”

Kabir Khan adds his thoughts and shares, “I have always thought of Deepika as a phenomenal actress and when I was thinking of casting for Romi Dev’s role, I could only think of Her. Romi has disarmingly charming and positive energy and Deepika has captured that with perfection. Her easy chemistry with Ranveer will also greatly help in portraying the relationship that Kapil Dev and Romi share. I’m delighted that Deepika has been such an integral part of our journey for ’83.”
