Contrary to rumours that claim Deepika Padukone has a walk-on role in 83, we can now confirm that the talented Bollywood actress does in fact have a rather meaty role.
“Deepika Padukone has a very important role in 83, she plays Kapil Dev’s wife Romi. Besides that, she is also Ranveer’s character’s support system and his sounding wall. So, yes Deepika has a major part in 83”, confirms our source. Ask for further details and the source tells Bollywood Hungama, “There were rumours that Deepika is seen in a walk-on role that barely lasts for a few minutes. But that is not the case, she features very prominently in the second half of the film and has a longer than 20-minute role in 83.”
