Deepika Padukone is NOT taking over the reins of ’83 post-production | Hindi Movie News

Deepika Padukone is a co-producer for ‘83 and a recent report suggested that she would take on the reins of post-production for the film in the absence of Shibhashish Sarkar, the CEO for Reliance Entertainment. While he had tested positive for Covid-19 recently, a report stated that Deepika’s presence would make a difference in the process, which be lead by director Kabir Khan.

However, slamming the talks, a source close to ‘83 shared, “In times of Covid 19, when all of us should be wishing each other well, a false and insensitive story has been done. Deepika Padukone, as a producer, like all producers of 83 is an integral part of the project. But when a film has a highly able director like Kabir Khan, who is dedicatedly looking into this post production, where is the need for anyone else to do anything?!”

Directed by Kabir Khan, ‘83 features Ranveer Singh in the lead role of Kapil Dev, as the film will trace the dramatic journey of India’s victor at the 1983 world cup. The sports drama features DP in the role of Ranveer’s onscreen wife. ‘83 also features Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Harrdy Sandhu, Ammy Virk, Jiiva, Pankaj Tripathi, Boman Irani, Nishant Dahiya, and Sahil Khattar.
