Sorry, No Deepika Padukone In 83

Good and bad news  for  fans of  the Ranveer-Deepika  pair. The good news is, they will  only be seen  together in films that completely  justify their combined  presence. The  bad news  is that they won’t come together  in Kabir Khan’s cricket film  83  , as excitedly reported in a section of  the  press.

Says a  source  from the  production  team, “’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. KapilDev’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.”

Gone are  the days when the superstar of the  1970s Jaya Bhaduri(Bachchan) agreed to  play the female lead  in  Zanjeer  just to give the man in her  life Amitabh Bachchan a career boost.

Deepika and Ranveer are thorough professionals. They will agree to  co-star again after the three Sanjay Bhansali films(Ram Leela,Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat) only if the project is worthy of their presence.

Deepika and Ranveer are not the  only iconic Bollywood pair  to restrain themselves from working together .Saif Ali Khan and Kareena have also decided they won’t work together unless the project justifies their  presence.
