The film has an ensemble cast being lead by Ranveer and now, DP to has given her go ahead to the film.” While many might think DP has just a cameo in the film, we hear it’s quite different. The informer adds, “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.”
But that’s not just it. DP will not only be credited as the leading lady in the sports drama. “Deepika has just ventured into production with Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak. When she has 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.” ’83 is also being produced by Kabir himself, in collaboration with Madhu Mantena and Vishnu Induri, and will be presented by Reliance Entertainment. Now with Deepika joining them, it couldn’t have gotten better, we say!
