Bollywood livewire Ranveer Singh, who is riding high after the super success of Rohit Shetty's 'Simmba' will soon start shooting for Kabir Khan's forthcoming sports drama 83, a biopic on legendary cricketer Kapil Dev, under whose captaincy India lifted the world cup trophy for the first time in 1983. The 'Ram Leela' actor is currently taking cricketing lessons for his role. 

Now the latest buzz says that Deepika is likely to essay the role of Romi Bhatia, Kapil Dev's wife in the movie. Reports suggest that Kabir Khan has approached Deepika for the role and the actress gave her nod immediately. Deepika 's part requires just seven days of shooting.

''The filmmakers believe the part where Romi Bhatia left the stadium mid-way assuming that West Indies will win the 1983 World Cup final, and the difficulties she encountered in coming back into the stadium when India was on the verge of winning, can be well emoted by Deepika,'' a source informed.

It would be pleasant to see Deepika essaying Ranveer's wife in reel-life.

Ranveer Singh will next feature as a street rapper in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy, co-starring Alia Bhatt. Meanwhile, Deepika has announced her next project Chhapaak, which will be directed by Meghna Gulzar.
