Deepika Padukone is an actress well-known to have a connection with her audience through her versatility of roles that she has always delivered.
Especially some of her roles in the past years involve her having an emotionally charged character and challenging parts like Rani Padmini in Padmavat or Mastani in Bajirao Mastani.
And now, we will witness her as an acid attack survivor in Chhapaak. But now, thanks to Kabir Khan-directed ’83, she is experiencing some “lighter moments” as well.
Deepika has been wanting to do a lighter role since she has constantly been doing intense characters. In a way, her part in ’83 fits that bill but not entirely because, in essence, the film is a gripping drama about Indian cricket team’s journey towards the 1983 world cup victory.
On this Deepika shares “Honestly speaking, I’ve always enjoyed playing characters that take a lot out of me, emotionally. Even in ’83, there are extreme highs and lows that Romi also goes through in the journey towards Indian cricket team creating history by winning the world cup.
But the film also explores lighter moments between Romi and Kapil Dev. So, in that sense, you can say that it has been a lighter part emotionally.”
