Director Kabir Khan is known for the kind of gripping films that he makes. After ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, the director is back with yet another riveting film ’83’. It will chronicle the journey of the Indian cricket team and their 1983 World Cup win.

The film will see Ranveer Singh playing the role of captain Kapil Dev. And interestingly, the actor’s real-life wife Deepika Padukone has been roped in to play his reel wife Romi Dev. Now though, Romi played a significant part in Kapil’s life and his subsequent win. However, the film will focus more on the team’s journey. So that means Deepika’s role in the film will be a supporting one. But guess what? The actress is apparently paid a whopping sum of 14 crores for her cameo appearance.

As per a report in the Asian Age, the leggy beauty is being paid a whopping sum for her cameo. Now if this report turns out to be true, then Deepika is being paid more than what she earned from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’. The report further stated that apparently, it was Ranveer who convinced Deepika to come on board for  ’83’. So far, we have never seen her play a supporting role in any of her films.

“I think Ranveer almost convinced her, then the zeros on the cheque did the rest,” the tabloid quoted a source (close to the producer).

’83’ is definitely one of the highly anticipated films with Ranveer and Deepika coming together for the first time post marriage.
