Neha Dhupia has a funny way of getting people to open up about their most memorable and intimate moments. Now, on her radio show, No Filter Neha, veteran cricketer Kapil Dev has opened up about how he proposed to his wife, Romi Dev. Kapil Dev’s role in Kabir Khan’s ’83 is being essayed by Ranveer Singh while Deepika Padukone will be playing the role of Romi.
“We were traveling in a car and that time an Amul ad was there. Amul had come out with a great ad. So, instead of ‘couple of these’, they said ‘Kapil of these make all the difference’, with my two teeth coming out with butter. So that ad, it was very funny and I said to my better half, ‘Rom, iska photo le lo (Romi, take its picture).’ She said, ‘Kyu? (Why).’ I said, ‘bacho ko dikhaenge (We will show this to our kids).’ So she said, ‘Are you proposing?’ I said, ‘what’s it sound like?’ Kapil Dev said on the show.
Kapil Dev further shared that Romi’s father had no qualms about his profession but her grandfather wondered how someone could play cricket for a living.
He said, “jab my father-in-law talked to his father ki ladki ke sath yeh ladka hai, kehte kya karta hai, kehte cricket khelta hai, who toh thik hai par karta kya hai. Woh puche ja rahe hai, old man must be 90 years old (When my father-in-law told his own father that their girl has found a boy, he asked ‘what does the guy do?’ On being told that the guy plays cricket, he said that ‘it’s fine that he plays cricket’ but kept on asking, ‘what does he do for a living?)”
