It is also reported that Deepika has been given a whopping Rs 14 crore for the film.

The second and nearly as special is the fact that we'll see Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone share screen space together after they tied the knot.


"The film is about the Indian cricket team led by Kapil Dev winning the 1983 World Cup in England and Wales.How much of a role Deepika can have as Kapil Dev's wife in a plot that is not devoted to Kapil's off-field life?" wonders the source. Ranveer had a wonderful response: "and this time we don't die in the end!" The lovebirds are all set to come together on the big screen as cricketer Kapil Dev and his wife Romi in Kabir Khan's "83". The duo also shared a witty boomerang where Deepika is hitting Ranveer with a bat.

Sources close to the film revealed to a publication that Deepika was in two minds regarding the film but the money offered and Ranveer's insistence helped make her decision.


This will be the first time Ranveer and Deepika will be seen featuring together in a film after their wedding. She will next be seen in director Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak, based on the life of an acid attack survivor. Deepika Padukone Indeed Had Multiple Reasons To Get On-Board!

"I think Ranveer nearly convinced her, Then the zeros on the cheque did the rest", says a source close to the producers of '83.


As one of the media reports noted, Deepika was not ready to role out such a small side in the film. The movie is slated to release on April 10, 2020.
