We must say, the actor is on a roll and how! He has been working non-stop after Padmavat released as he had been shooting for Rohit Shetty's Simmba which has now become a blockbuster hit. Post that he took off briefly to get married to his long-time girlfriend Deepika and soon after, was seen promoting Rohit's film. While he rode high on it's success, his next film directed by Zoya Akhtar was already up for release and Ranveer was once again seen with the same energy at the film's promotional event. And now, without taking any breaks, the ever-enthusiastic actor has already begun preps for his next, which is the Kapil Dev biopic 83. And we are just floored by the amount of energy this guy has!
Meanwhile, reports had emerged a while back that Ranveer's real-life wife Deepika is being considered to play Kapil's life-partner Romi Bhatia. However, whether that has not yet been confirmed by the makers.
