Speculations have been rife that Deepika Padukone might star opposite Ranveer Singh in the Kabir Khan directorial '83. '83 is a biopic on Kapil Dev, the man who captained the Indian Cricket Team responsible to clinch the first World Cup for India in the year 1983. However, fresh reports suggest that Deepika has declined the offer as she has very little to do in the script. Yes, you read it right! Well, this might upset DeepVeer fan. 

A source informed Deccan Chronicle that since '83 is essentially about Kapil Dev which is being played by Ranveer Singh, his wife has very little significance in the story and DP being the huge brand wouldn't take up such a role. “’83 is a boys’ films. The focus is on Kapil Dev and his team bringing home the World Cup. Ranveer plays Kapil Dev. While Deepika playing his wife Romi sounds tempting, it’s just not true. Kapil Dev’s wife’s role will be very limited in this film and Deepika is a huge brand. She wouldn’t do any film just because her husband is in it," the source informed the daily.

Speaking of Ranveer and Deepika, the duo starred together in many films including Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat, among others. The duo got married in November last year in an intimate wedding setting followed by an elaborate reception in Mumbai and Bengaluru. 

On the work front, Deepika will soon begin shooting for her next movie which she is also producing titled Chhapaak. 



I do not understand! LOL...

Huge star lol

She has the highest brand value in bollywood. So yes, I'd say she is one lol

She should take up watever comes so she stays connected with audience or else people will forget her saying as a fan

If I were her I wouldn't either. She's a leading lady who needs a substantial role. I don't think Ranveer expected her to do it because he said recently that any collboration they do together has to be special and live up to their jodi. '83 won't provide that.


She doesn't mind to play second fiddle to Ranveer in SLB's movies?

Because it is not Bhansali directing :p

I agree with her.....that's why I love this woman
