As the spirited Mrs Kapil Dev,she is barely there in Kabir Khan’s splendidly sportive ’83. Deepika Padukone has not charged any money for her semi-cameo in Kabir Khan’s ’83.
A source close to one of the film’s producers informs me, “Initially Deepika didn’t want to do ’83. She found the role too brief for her consideration. But her husband Ranveer Singh who plays Kapil Dev wanted only his wife for the role. That’s when the Deepika stepped in .And did the cameo for no fee at all.”
One hopes Deepika’s fans wouldn’t go home dissatisfied. She is very happy with her role .
A source close to the producers informs me, “Deepika was an absolute sport. She stepped in to play Romi Dev because Ranveer felt only she can play his wife. And she was game.”
