Ranveer and Deepika have worked together in three films in the past – Goliyon Ki Raasleela… Ram Leela (2013), Bajirao Mastani (2016) and Padmaavat (2018). However, while in the 2018 period drama, they were not meant to be paired as romantic leads, in the other two films, the characters of both the stars die at the end of the story. Ranveer is happy that now in ’83, their characters are finally going to survive in the story. He made a comment on Deepika’s post and wrote, “… and this time we don’t die in the end! Yay! ” (sic). He also posted a hilarious clip of himself goofing around with Deepika. Watch this:
