Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are one of the hottest couples both onscreen and off-screen. Three massive blockbusters, Goliyon Ki Rasleela – Ramleela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat and we’re in awe of this duo. They complement each other well and also balance each other’s contrasting personalities.
Their onscreen pairing has been such a hit during their courtship that we couldn’t wait to see them star in a movie together post marriage. Our excitement doubled when we heard that Deepika was approached to play Kapil Dev’s wife Romi in 83, with hubby Ranveer playing the ace cricketer.
Our excitement was short-lived because Deepika has turned down the film. A source recently told Deccan Chronicle, “83 is a boys’ film. The focus is on Kapil Dev and his team bringing home the World Cup. Ranveer plays Kapil Dev. While Deepika playing his wife Romi sounds tempting, it’s just not true. Kapil Dev’s wife’s role will be very limited in this film and Deepika is a huge brand. She wouldn’t do any film just because her husband is in it.”
Although this is slightly disappointing, we’re proud of Deepika for making this choice. It is great how she makes sure to not let her personal life influence her professional decisions.
Deepika also walked out of Aamir Khan’s Mahabharata this year, but it is confirmed that she will play acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak.
Now the reports suggest that Deepika has signed a film with director Luv Ranjan. Any guesses about the male lead? It’s none other than Ranbir Kapoor! Yes, you heard that right! Ranbir and Deepika are all set to set the screen ablaze with their sizzling chemistry. The last time they were seen together was in Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha.

As per reports, Ajay Devgn too will be a part of this film. A source revealed, “In spite of two solid male stars, Ranjan’s film has a terrific role for the female lead. Deepika is the first choice and there’s no reason why she would turn down a plum role.”
We can’t keep calm, can you?
