After wrapping up her first movie as a producer and actor, actress Deepika Padukone flew to London and has confirmed that she will be playing the role of Kapil Dev's wife Romi Bhatia in the Kabir Khan helmed '83 which also stars Deepika Padukone's real-life husband Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev.
Actor Ranveer Singh who is currently shooting for his upcoming film, ‘83 in the UK, will reportedly shoot the final match of the 1983 cricket World Cup at the Lord’s after ICC Cricket World Cup wraps up on July 14. Notably, the film, which has become the talk of the town, showcases India's journey towards winning the World Cup trophy in 1983.
According to a report in Mid-Day, a source from the creative team of the film has said that the director Kabir Khan has designed the schedule in such a way that the unit will finish filming pivotal matches by mid-July. The source has added, "By then, the ongoing World Cup will wrap up. The unit will then head to Lord’s to shoot the 1983 World Cup final, which forms the climax of the sports drama.”
