In conversation with a leading daily, the actor said that just like Ranveer met Kapil Dev to get a better understanding of his character, Deepika too met Romi Dev a couple of times. Deepika added that Romi is extremely refreshing and funny. “I feel so inspired every time I meet her. She has an extremely refreshing energy, is intelligent, knowledgeable, and funny. I like her candour. Romi ji is someone who is extremely honest and when she needs to express herself, she does it with a lot of dignity. I like the way she conducts herself with so much grace”, said Deepika.
She further went on to say, “At the end of day, for any champion, the drive, commitment and dedication must come from within. But yes, having a solid support system is important as it allows the person to work without holding back, without any kind of emotional burden. In that sense, Romiji has played an extremely important part in Kapil Dev’s success.”
