Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have worked magic on screen with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and recently Padmaavat. The couple’s chemistry has been striking, even when they haven’t shared any screen space in Padmaavat. So when it came to playing Kapil Dev’s wife Romi in Singh’s next, ’83, his lady love was the obvious choice but Padukone had to politely turn down the offer.
A source reveals, “’83 is a boys’ films. The focus is on Kapil Dev and his team bringing home the World Cup. Ranveer plays Kapil Dev. While Deepika playing his wife Romi sounds tempting, it’s just not true. Kapil Dev’s wife’s role will be very limited in this film and Deepika is a huge brand. She wouldn’t do any film just because her husband is in it.”
In other news, Padukone will be seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak next and Singh has Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy opposite Alia Bhatt.
