  |   Bollywood / Deepika Padukone

That Ranveer Singh is in London to shoot for Kabir Khan’s sports drama is a fact known to all and for all those who don’t know, Deepika Padukone, who jetted off to London a few days back, will be shooting with hubby Ranveer Singh.

Deepika will be playing the role of Romi Dev, Kapil Dev’s wife in the film and talking about her excitement to share screen space with Ranveer Singh, Deepika told a leading daily, “I am so glad that Kabir came to me with it. This happened a couple of months ago when he was still casting the boys for the film. It’s just that I was busy with Chhappak and we were waiting for the right moment to make the announcement.”

When quizzed if the dynamics between her and Ranveer will change as actors post their wedding, Deepika said, “When you are in the business of movies, you are playing a character. Of course, all of this is yet to play out, but at the end of the day, you are essaying a role, and at that point, you are not thinking whether your co-actor is your husband, brother or someone you know closely. All you try to do is, be honest in that moment.”

While Deepika feels that had it not been for Ranveer playing the role of Kapil Dev, she would have still done the role of Kapil Dev’s wife. “The personal equation doesn’t spill over into the workspace. I can’t think of anyone else who could do justice to the role (of Kapil Dev), but if there was someone else playing him in the film, and not Ranveer, I would still do my part. This isn’t coming from a personal equation, but from my passion and enthusiasm for the film,” said Deepika.
