Bollywood’s beloved couple, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, will be starring in ’83 as Kapil Dev and Romi Dev. The film, helmed by Kabir Khan, will showcase the 1983 World Cup. The actors have already wrapped up the film. Recently, Deepika revealed that she watches cricket with Ranveer and her all-time favourite cricketer is Rahul Dravid.
“Ranveer and I watch matches together, he is a very big football fan which everyone knows – but he is also a big cricket fan. We don’t watch every single match, but yes, when there are important games, we either make it a point to sit with each other or with family and friends and make it an event, like the whole nation does,” Deepika Padukone revealed during Star Sports’ show Nerolac Cricket Live.
She further said, “My all-time favourite cricketer is Rahul Dravid; a lot of my idols are not what they have done in the sport and the game, but how they have conducted themselves outside – for me he is somebody I have admired and looked up to, and, he is from Bangalore.”
On the work front, Deepika Padukone will be next seen in Chhapaak. She is playing the role of an acid attack survivour – a story inspired by Laxmi Agarwal. The film, helmed by Meghna Gulzar, is set to release on January 10, 2019.
