We were among the first ones to tell you how Deepika Padukone could be a part of hubby Ranveer Singh’s ’83. And now it can finally be confirmed! Yes, there’s good news for the fans of the couple, as Deepika has been confirmed to play Ranveer Singh’s wife onscreen. So, while Ranveer Singh essays the role of Indian Cricket team’s former captain Kapil Dev, wife Deepika Padukone will be seen in the role of Kapil Dev’s wife Roma Dev. While there was buzz that she may be co-producing the film, there’s no truth to that, though Ranveer has a stake in the project like most stars do.

’83 will mark the couple’s first outing together on the big screen after their wedding last year (2018). The couple was last seen together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 2018 magnum opus Padmaavat. Now, CineBlitz has exclusively learnt that Deepika will be playing Ranveer’s screen wife in Kabir Khan’s film that’s based on Indian cricket team’s historic 1983 World Cup victory at the Lords Cricket Grounds, England.

But that’s not all. We also have the real reason why Deepika has agreed to doing this role and it’s not just working with husband Ranveer Singh. While Deepika had been contemplating the role, what locked the deal for her was the fact that she did not want to let go of a chance to be a part of a film that captured on celluloid such a historic moment that made the entire country proud. The draw was the strong emotional connect as a proud Indian, say insiders.

Interestingly, Roma Dev herself had missed watching the final crucial moments of India’s historic win at Lords in 1983. She had in a show revealed that she had left the stadium between the match as she thought that the Indian team will lose and she didn’t want to look upset. Also she had revealed that with the West Indies hitting sixes and fours, the families of the players were teasing them and Roma found it embarrassing. So, it will be interesting to see how Deepika’s role will be played out especially in the crucial final scenes.

The film that recently saw Sajid Nadiadwala come onboard as a producer, is currently in pre-production with the star cast perfecting their cricketing moves guided by the real heroes of cricket including Kapil Dev himself. What do you think about Deepika Padukone playing Roma Dev in Ranveer Singh’s ’83? Do let us know in the comments section below.

Super star Salman Khan took to social media yesterday and wrote, “The film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali is pushed but I will still see you all on Eid, 2020. Insha-Allah!!’ Bollywood denizens went berserk after reading this tweet from Salman. According to sources Sanjay Leela Bhansali was to start shooting of the film from this week with Alia Bhatt on a set that is being constructed at Mehboob studios in Mumbai, a stone’s throw from Salman’s residence. Also the locations and local production team are finalised in the USA! Titled Inshallah, the film is supposed to be a remake of the Hollywood hit Pretty Woman.

In his tweet, Salman hinted at another announcement of a film for which he is likely to start shooting and plans to take the release date of Bhansali. There is intense speculation that the release date could be assigned to Dabangg 3, shooting for which is already in progress.

Bhansali fans are left wondering what will happen to the film now, considering that Salman has given away the dates in all probability to another film. Hope it is not creative differences that has led to the push of Inshallah! For more gossip from Bollywood’s inside track, keep reading CineBlitz!

Angel Has Fallen is raising the bar of the Fallen Series

Secret Service agents live in a constant state of high alert. At any given second, they have to be ready to thwart a near-infinite number of potential threats that could come from any country, any group, or any person, without warning.  Their sacrifices—the persistent danger, the merciless demands on body and soul, the stress on their relationships—are rarely recognised publicly, but they don’t do it for the recognition.  They do it because they are driven to serve the highest office of the land and the bedrock of democracy.

That kind of devotion has always defined Mike Banning in the movie Angel has Fallen. On the job, he is a cunning, dogged, laser-focused patriot, but he is also a self-questioning and at times a self-deprecating man who has his dark corners of jagged regrets and frustrations.  He has done and seen it all.  In Olympus Has Fallen, he rescued the First Family from a North Korean-led kidnapping inside the White House.  In London Has Fallen, he kept President Asher from harm during a terrorist attack on world leaders attending the British Prime Minister’s funeral.

Director Ric Roman Waugh jumped right away at the idea of exploring Mike Banning not just in jeopardy but in a chaotic state of mind.  He knew from making That Which I Love Destroys Me that a man like Banning would, like so many real-life warriors in the military and law enforcement worlds, have to pay the piper for the mental, physical and spiritual toll of his work.

“What I learned making the doc is that there are a lot of modern-day warriors who have a different kind of PTSD,” explains the director.  “It’s not the classic shellshock where they are running away from war. Instead, they’ve become addicted to war, to the intensity of it, and that makes it harder for them to return to society and everyday life.  We made the documentary about members of the military, but after it premiered, I started hearing from all kinds of other people, from first responders and law enforcement and more, talking about how they were going through the same thing. So, I felt from the beginning that this would be a very authentic and interesting journey to take with Mike Banning.  He is, as he’s told in the film, a lion, but there are consequences to always being a lion.”

Butler loved Waugh’s approach to the action. “Ric’s style is all about putting you smack in the middle of the chaos,” Butler explains. “He sucks you in with a gritty realism—so that even in the most insane scenarios, you feel you are right there in the moment with Banning.” For more updates from Bollywood and show business keep reading CineBlitz.

Bollywood has been buzzing with the big news that Anushka Sharma has committed to play the lead role opposite Hrithik Roshan in the remake of Satte Pe Satta. While she has consciously decided to cut down on work nowadays, but the actress is going to honour two big commitments, Satte Pe Satta being one of them.

This is also going to be an exciting and fresh pairing as Hrithik and Anushka have never worked together. Initially, actresses like Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone were approached for the role, but the makers felt a new pairing was needed for the film.

Released in the 80’s, the original Satte Pe Satta itself was inspired by the American musical film Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. The Bollywood version Satte Pe Satta featured Amitabh Bachchan in a double role with Hema Malini and Ranjeeta cast opposite him. The new remake is now being directed by Farah Khan and produced by Rohit Shetty. Stay glued to CineBlitz for more news and updates from Bollywood.
