Kabir Khan’s next ’83 based on Indian cricket team’s world cup victory in 1983 is one of the most awaited films of the year. It’s surely going to make everyone nostalgic. Kabir Khan has gone all out and given all his actors a look quite similar to the real cricketers from the winning team and today the makers dropped yet another amazing image to tease the audience.
The makers revealed Deepika Padukone’s first look from the film where she plays Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev. In the still, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone share striking resemblance with Kapil Dev and Romi Bhatia. Deepika is seen holding the reel Kapil Dev’s arms played by her real husband Ranveer Singh. The makers seem to have done an amazing job at making these actors look so similar to Kapil Dev and Romi Dev.
Some time back, Deepika had spoken about her small but important role in ’83 and said, “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 have 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.”
