Deepika Padukone: HUGE NEWS for xXx star and husband Ranveer Singh

Despite previous claims that she and husband Ranveer Singh would not be working together any time soon, that appears to have changed. The Bollywood megastar, whose star power went global with xXx: Return of Xander Cage in 2017, is set to work with Singh on a new movie about the Indian national cricket team winning the sport’s World Cup in 1983. The pair unveiled the project, called simply 83, on Instagram.

Padukone shared a photograph of herself with Singh and director Kabir Khan, captioned: “& on to the next…Thank You @kabirkhankk for this incredible honour…! #RomiDev #Day1 @83thefilm @ranveersingh.”

Singh commented: “… And this time we don’t die in the end! Yay!”

He also posted to Instagram to confirm the news, sharing a Boomerang in which Padukone appears to playfully hit him with a cricket bat.

“Story of my Life,” he quipped. “Real & Reel!”

The news comes after Singh said back in January that they wouldn’t work together in 2019.

“My wife and I will not have a film together this year,” he said, according to thenews.com.pk.

“I’m hoping that filmmakers will approach the two of us with a script that we like and can take it forward.

“I’m looking forward to sharing screen space with her.”

They had worked together on the massively successful – yet also controversial – Padmaavat; as well as the likes of Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani.

“The chemistry between us is extra special. It has been seen and proven,” Singh said.

“Much as I am truly, madly and deeply in love with her, I am aching to act with Deepika again.

“As a fan of her work, I have been waiting patiently for her to commit to a film. And I’m truly overjoyed that she has committed to working with Meghna Gulzar on Chhapaak.”

She is also believed to be due to return for xXx 4, although there has been little by way of filming news over recent months.
