Deepika Padukone’s first look from Kabir Khan’s 83 is out now. The actress is playing the role of Kapil Dev’s wife, Romi Dev.

83 is based on the Indian cricket team’s 1983 World Cup win. The lead role of Kapil Dev is being played by Ranveer Singh. Dev was the captain of the Indian cricket team at that time.

Deepika took to social media for posting the much-awaited picture. Sharing the picture, she wrote, “To be able to play a small part in a film that captures one of the most iconic moments in sporting history has been an absolute honor. I’ve seen very closely the role a wife plays in the success of her husband’s professional and personal aspirations in my mother and 83 for me in many ways is an ode to every woman who puts her husband’s dream before her own… (sic).”

The freshly released picture shows Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev and Deepika Padukone as Romi Dev. Deepika is holding Ranveer by his arm, and both can be seen looking at each other with a broad smile on their face. While Ranveer can be seen in the official suit of the Indian cricket team, Deepika can be seen sporting short hair.

Ranveer Singh too posted the same picture with a beautiful caption dedicated to his wife. He wrote, “The Wind beneath my Wings. The Heart of the Hurricane (sic).”

The film has been directed by Kabir Khan and is set to hit the theatres on 10th April this year.
