Bollywood’s favourite power couple, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are all set to reunite on screen for their next film, 83, helmed by Kabir Khan. Ranveer Singh recently took to social media to officially welcome Deepika to the set with a series of pictures. Ranveer is gearing up to play the legendary Kapil Dev while Deeps will play his wife Romi Dev.
“*drum roll* All smiles as All-star @deepikapadukone joins the #83squad !!!” Ranveer captioned the first picture.
Another post shows the couple with director Kabir Khan sharing a laugh in Glasgow, which the Padmaavat star captioned, “Good times in Glasgow! #83squad”
This will be the first time Ranveer and Deepika will be seen alongside each other since they got married in November last year and fans can hardly wait. The duo even had some fun while making the announcement with a fun boomerang that Ranveer posted on his page.
What’s more interesting to know however, is how much Deepika is going to be paid for this film. (Get ready for your jaws to drop because it’s a hefty amount!) According to rumours which have been circulating, DP is going to be getting compensated with a whopping 14 crores for her part in the cricket film. Deepika was previously in two minds about whether or not to accept the role but eventually agreed to do it (perhaps because of her hubby?) Despite not playing the leading role, all those zeroes most certainly won’t hurt DP’s bank account.
Deepika is just wrapped up shooting for her upcoming film, Chhapaak, which is based on acid attack victim Laxmi Agarwal. Earlier this year the Bajirao Mastani starlet shared her first look from the film, calling it the most precious film of her career. “And it’s a wrap on the most precious film of my career. See you all at the movies!” she wrote.
