Deepika Padukone is a versatile actress and is known for her variety when it comes to different roles in different film genres. Deepika has been able to play emotionally charged characters to a dramatic leading lady and it is never easy for an actor to adapt to different roles. But it seems Deepika has managed rather well and for this reason is one of Bollywood’s highest paid actresses. Deepika Padukone is recognized for her stellar performances in films such as Padmaavat, Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani and is now gearing up for her upcoming film, Chhapaak, in which she will essay the role of acid attack survivor.
Deepika Padukone is currently working on Kabir Khan’s upcoming film, ’83, which will narrate the story of legendary cricketer Kapil Dev and how he led the Indian team to victory in the 1983 World Cup. In comparison to Chhapaak however, Deepika Padukone has been experiencing some ‘lighter moments’ as well. In a recent interview, Deepika spoke about the film and said, “Honestly speaking, I’ve always enjoyed playing characters that take a lot out of me, emotionally. Even in ’83, there are extreme highs and lows that Romi also goes through in the journey towards Indian cricket team creating history by winning the world cup. But the film also ,albeit briefly explores lighter moments between Romi and her husband [Kapil Dev]. So, in that sense, you can say that it has been a lighter part emotionally.”
An insider who is close to the project said, “For some time now, Deepika has spoken about her craving to do a lighter role since she has constantly been doing intense characters. In a way, her part in ’83 fits that bill of a comparatively lighter part but not entirely because in essence, the film is a gripping drama about the Indian cricket team’s journey towards the  world cup victory.”
Deepika is all set to essay the role of Kapil Dev’s wife, Romi Bhatia, who will be played by her husband Ranveer Singh. This will be the first time that Ranveer and Deepika will be seen on screen together after they tied the knot last year.
