Deepika Padukone is undoubtedly one of the most sought after actresses in the Hindi film industry and is most certainly a force to be reckoned with. She is recognized for her stellar performances in a myriad of films including Padmaavat, Ram Leela and Piku. The starlet has been making waves in the industry and never fails to leave heads turning each time she steps out. She serves major style inspo with her fashion forward looks and bold sartorial choices and made a head turning statement at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.
She is now shooting for Kabir Khan’s ’83 in which she will be starring alongside husband, Ranveer Singh and essaying the role of his wife, Romi Dev. The film is all set to narrate the story of legendary cricket player, Kapil Dev; who led the Indian cricket team to victory in the 1983 World Cup. The film marks the first time the couple will be seen in a film together since they tied the knot last year.
The actress recently opened up about the film and how special she considered the role to be for her. "Kabir thought of me for the film, it is a very small role but a very special role because I feel like the role of a spouse, of family, is not always given enough credit when you look at athletes and they win on a international stage (or platform), aise uchaiyo tak jab pohochte hai, toh family ko bohot kam recognition milta hai (when they reach such heights, the family gets very little recognition), so keeping that in mind, I wanted to do the film,” she said.
On the work front, alongside Kabir Khan’s 83, Deepika is also gearing up for the release of Meghna Gulzaar’s Chhapaak in which she will essay the role of real life acid attack survivor; Laxmi Agarwal. The film is slated for release next year and fans can hardly wait.
