Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in 83.
While Ranveer Singh's look as Kapil Dev from his upcoming film 83 was released by the makers a few months ago, fans were waiting for Deepika Paduone's look from the film. Now, the first look of the actress as Romi Dev has been released. 83 is based on Indian cricket team's win at 1983 World Cup. Ranveer Singh is playing the lead role of Kapil Dev, who was the captain of the winning team.
In the picture, which features Deepika Padukone with Ranveer Singh, the actress is seen sporting short hair. She can be seen wearing a high-neck top, while Ranveer is wearing official team blazer. The couple is smiling while looking at each other.
Deepika Padukone took to social media to share the new look. Sharing the photo, she wrote, "To be able to play a small 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... (sic)."
