first_imgIt seems Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone fans are in for some bad news. At a time when rumours of their on-screen collaboration for 83 spread like wildfire, latest buzz suggests that Deepika has turned down Kabir Khan’s much-talked-about project. 83 is based on India’s historic 1983 cricket world cup win.It is no secret that Ranveer Singh is playing Kapil Dev in the sports drama, and rumour had it that Deepika was approached to play the role of Kapil Dev’s wife, Romi. But according to a report in a leading daily, that’s not happening anymore.A source was quoted as telling a daily, “83 is a boys films. The focus is on Kapil Dev and his team bringing home the World Cup. Ranveer plays Kapil Dev. Some people are writing that Deepika will play his wife Romi. Sounds tempting. But it’s just not true. Kapil Dev’s wife’s role will be very limited in this film. Deepika is a huge brand. She wouldn’t do any film just because her husband is in it.”It was just recently that Ranveer expressed his desire to work with Deepika, and said that he was “aching” to work with her again. But it seems their fans will have to wait a little longer to this real-life jodi together on screen again.On the work front, Deepika has signed Meghna Gulzar’s Chappak, a film on acid-attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal. In fact, the actress has also turned producer with the film. Ranveer, on the other hand, is awaiting the release of Gully Boy opposite Alia Bhatt. The actor has already started prepping up for 83.advertisementALSO READ | Deepika Padukone to play Ranveer Singh’s wife in 83?ALSO READ | Deepika Padukone on birthday and honeymoon plans with Ranveer Singh: It will be extra specialALSO WATCH | Deepika Padukone marries Ranveer Singh in Italylast_img read more
