Kabir Khan’s ’83 is among one of the most awaited Bollywood films of this year and due to several reasons; be it the iconic backdrop, an ensemble cast or Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s reunion on the silver screens. The film will feature Deepika Padukone stepping into the shoes Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev, whereas Ranveer Singh will be essaying the legendary cricketer. Well, Kabir, in the past, had once said how he feels that Deepika is the perfect choice to play Romi and, now that her first look from the film is out, we totally agree with the filmmaker!
In the first look picture, we can see the Deepika nailing Romi Dev’s portrayal with utmost perfection as she sports a bob and a wide smile that reminds us of Romi from her younger days. She is wearing a black turtleneck top with a crème-coloured skirt and lovingly gazing into Ranveer Singh’s eyes. Ranveer, too, has pulled off Kapil Dev with perfection, be it look wise or the former skipper’s body language. Is there anything this talented couple can’t do? We guess not!
Speaking about her small but crucial part as Romi in ’83, Deepika said to BT, “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 honour. Through my mother, I’ve seen closely the role of a wife. Wife plays in the success of her husband’s professional and personal aspirations. ‘83, for me, in many ways is an ode to every woman who puts her husband’s dream before her own.”
Check out her first look below:
Kabir Khan added, “Romi has charming & positive energy & Deepika has captured that with perfection. Her easy chemistry with Ranveer will also help in portraying the relationship that Kapil & Romi share. I’m delighted that Deepika has been such an integral part of our journey.” (ALSO READ - Ranveer Singh And Jatin Sarna Lip-Lock; ‘83 Actor Concerned Of His Wife Deepika Padukone’s Reaction - VIDEO)
