There are two cricket moments that hold a special place in our hearts – India’s 1983 World Cup win and Sachin Tendulkar’s victory lap in 2011. And director Kabir Khan is bringing the former to the silver screen with Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, Tahir Raj Bhasin as Sunil Gavaskar, Dhairya Karwa as Ravi Shastri, Dhairya Karwa as Ravi Shastri and Jiiva as Krishnamachari Srikkanth.
According to NDTV, the film also features Deepika Padukone as the Haryana Hurricane’s wife Romi Dev and here is her first look sporting a short bob hairstyle.

India Today quoted the actress saying,
“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 honour. 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.”
Earlier, Ranveer earned praise for acing the iconic ‘Natraj Shot’ and now film buffs are gushing over how Deepika is nailing Romi’s look in the movie slated to release in April.
Here is how #DeepVeer fans are reacting to the first look:
