Deepika No Concession For Working With Ranveer

 Everyone connected with the mega-sportsflick  ’83 knows the  focus  of interest  in the film is cricket legend KapilDev and his triumph at the 1983 Cricket World Cup. In fact  if you look at  the   lineup of actors  playing  the  cricket team of 1983 only Ranveer  Singh is  a bankable  star in the cast. The  others are  all actors.

This is  why  Deepika Padukone,  who is  without doubt the  highest paid  female  actor in India, surprised  everyone  by  hopping on board  for what looks like  a boys’ sports  film.

Apparently  Ranveer was  very keen  to have  Deepika play his wife  in ’83, although, sources confirm, Deepika’s role is no more than an extended cameo.

“Romi Dev , Mrs Kapil Dev, is very important  in Kapil Dev’s life. But as far as  the  1983 Cricket world Cup was concerned she was  hardly a key player, for obvious reasons, The  producers wanted to sign a good actress instead  of an A-lister for  the wife’s role. But Ranveer Singh  convinced, in  fact persuaded,the producers  to go withDeepika.”

And Deepika  has been  paid  her full market price  for 83—on  a par with Ranveer’s  remuneration—in spite of her  abbreviated  role.

Way to go ,Lady.
