Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone has never had a happy ending to their characters in films that they have done together. Ram Leela or Bajirao Mastani, their characters have died in both these films. Fans have literally vouched many a times to see happy ending in the films that they do together and seems like their wait is over. Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh will be seen opposite each other in Kabir Khan's next film '83, which is a biopic on the life of cricketer Kapil Dev. Ranveer will be essaying Kapil's role and Deepika will be seen as his wife, Romi Bhatia. The actress will also co-producer the film.
A source quoted by Pinkvilla said, "Deepika has been locked for Kabir Khan's next film '83. The film that revolves around India's 1983 World Cup victory, will primarily focus on Kapil Dev's story. The film has an ensemble cast being lead by Ranveer and now, DP too has given her go ahead to the film."
Throwing some light on Deepika's stint in the film not being a mere cameo, the source added, "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 the relationship between the husband and wife, their love story."
Deepika, who is currently doing Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak as the lead character as well as the producer for the same, will be co-producing '83 too. The source revealed, "Deepika has just ventured into production with Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak. When she was narrated the story of '83, she loved it because it's not just inspirational but also extremely emotional. She and Kabir have been friends for years now. So she decided to come on board as a co-producer, too. This will be the second venture under her banner."
Kabir Khan's '83 is produced by Kabir himself along with Madhu Mantena, Vishnu Induri and now Deepika Padukone Singh will be presented by Reliance Entertainment.
