Actress Deepika Padukone, who was recently seen in the sensitive movie ‘Chhapaak’ is all set for her new upcoming biography, drama-sport movie ‘83’.
Deepika on Wednesday shared her look as Romi Dev, wife of cricket legend Kapil Dev which surfaced on social media. For the role she had to transform herself especially her hair even for a small role.
In the photo, she is dressed in a black top and peach coloured bottom, and sporting a short hairdo. She is seen smiling at actor Ranveer Singh, who plays Kapil in the film.
She captioned the photograph, "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." "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," added the daughter of badminton star Prakash Padukone.
Ranveer Singh and Kapil Dev share a light moment during the shooting of '83'.
The film's director Kabir Khan shared: 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 a 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'," added the director about Deepika, who is married to Ranveer in real life too.
Ranveer and Deepika are seen as the “couple goals” couple of Bollywood.
