Actress Deepika Padukone, as we are writing this now, is lighting up the sets of Ranveer Singh’s ’83 in Glasgow. Ranveer Singh, who features as Kapil Dev in the Kabir Khan-directed movie, officially announced that Deepika will play the role of the cricket legend’s wife Romi Dev, in a post and his excitement spilled onto both Twitter and Instagram. In one of the posts, Ranveer, who is known for his hatke way of doing things, summed up how his real and reel life have merged on the sets of ’83. Tweeting an ROFL boomerang video of Deepika taking charge as the bats-(wo)man on sets (Ahem… Ranveer doubled up as the ball), the actor wrote: “Story of my life – real and reel!”
Deepika Padukone, who also filled up her album with the ’83 special photos, captioned them: “And on to the next… Thank you, Kabir Khan for this incredible honour!” Ranveer dropped a quirky comment: “And this time we don’t die in the end! Yay!” Ranveer and Deepika, co-stars of Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed blockbusters, witness tragic ends in films like Ram Leela (both their characters die), Bajirao Mastani (their characters die again) and “Padmaavat” (Deepika’s character sacrifices herself).
