After the makers of the film '83 shared the first look of Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, audiences have been waiting for Deepika's role. Deepika Padukone is playing Kapil Dev's wife role in the film. This is the first time that the actress will be playing the reel life wife of Ranveer Singh. In the picture that Deepika shared, she has short hair and is wearing a black high neck top. Ranveer and Deepika are looking adorably at each other as the camera clicks them. While sharing the first look of Romi Dev, Deepika also wrote a heartfelt note for women. She says that she feels honoured to be playing the role. She also wants to give a shout out to all the women who stand strong with their husbands. Just like her mother, she thinks Romi Dev deserves the honour of a strong woman supporting her husband throughout.
Deepika wrote, "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've 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...
