Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone, who is recently busy in her shooting for Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak, will be seen in a little role in Kabir Khan's '83. She will be seen as Romi Dev, spouse of former Indian player Kapil Dev. In a recent interview with the media, Deepika too was asked as to whether she might want to play a sportsperson, given the number of films being made on sports icons and she had a fairly sweet reply.
Deepika said that she would like to play her dad Prakash Padukone, who became the first Indian to win the All England Open Badminton Championships. She was, obviously, aware of the gender issue.
"I understand the gender issue. But if I had to play a sports person, then it would be him or any sports legend from that time. That is because of what they achieved in the circumstances, within the limited exposure and knowledge versus the kind of funds, facilities and visibility available to athletes today. Be that as it may, despite all that, to accomplish that significance and unbelievable status is praiseworthy. Our days of old athletes inspire me."
Deepika will be seen in Meghna Gulzar's next, Chhapaak, where she will play a character named Malti. The film is roused by the genuine story of Delhi girl, Laxmi Agarwal who is an acid attack survivor. The film additionally stars Vikrant Massey.
