Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh were previously seen in various movies such as Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat and Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela. And now both will be seen in '83, their first film post their wedding. Deepika had previously confirmed how she will be essaying the role of Romi Dev, the wife of Kapil Dev in the movie which is based on the 1983 World Cup.

Deepika was also seen in London filming with the whole team of '83. And though much wasn't known of her character, Deepika in a recent interview opened up about the same. She in her recent interview spoke about how her character as Romi Dev will be much lighter from the ones she has played over the past few years. She also revealed that her character will be seen various facing various hardships as the India team in the film lifts the cup at the World Cup tournament.

Deepika revealed, "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."

It was also initially reported how Deepika wanted to play a lighter character after doing the various intense role. The source stated, "For some time now, Deepika has often 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 will next be seen in Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak, where she will tell the tale of an acid attack victim. The film is all set for release on January 10, 2020.
