It’s important that the leading lady knows the game well, which makes it a challenging task for us. Every film comes with its destiny. I don’t know who is destined to play Sindhu, but yes, Deepika Padukone has always been our first choice and that holds true even today. I didn’t approach her back then because I wanted her to read the final script.” This Is When Ranveer Singh And Deepika Padukone Will Film The Final World Cup Match Of 1983.
