Deepika Padukone has always been seen acing emotionally and physically challenging roles. Her work in ‘Bajirao Mastani’ (2015) and ‘Padmaavat’ (2018) was commendable. She has just wrapped up her filming for Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Chhapaak’ that is based on the real-life story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. But now, in 83′, Deepika Padukone will be seen portraying a rather light-hearted role.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Deepika spoke about her role in ’83’, “Honestly speaking, I’ve always enjoyed playing characters that take a lot out of me, emotionally. Even in ’83, there are extreme highs and lows that Romi also goes through in the journey towards Indian cricket team creating history by winning the world cup. But the film also — albeit briefly — explores lighter moments between Romi and her husband [Kapil Dev]. So, in that sense, you can say that it has been [a] lighter [part] emotionally.

An insider to the project revealed to Hindustan Times, “For some time now, Deepika has spoken about her craving to do a lighter role since she has constantly been doing intense characters. In a way, her part in ’83’ fits that bill [of a comparatively lighter part] but not entirely because in essence, the film is a gripping drama about Indian [cricket] team’s journey towards the [1983] world cup victory.

Deepika Padukone plays the role of Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev in ’83’. Deepika’s hubby Ranveer Singh will also be playing her husband i.e. Kapil Dev’s character in the film.
