Kabir Khan’s film “83”, will chronicle India’s win under Kapil’s captainship, when the Men in Blue defeated West Indies in the final to clinch their first-ever World Cup trophy in 1983. Ranveer Singh, who will be playing Kapil Dev in Kabir Khan’s “83”, will soon begin training with the cricket legend for the sports drama. “I am looking forward to spending time with Kapil Sir. I feel like that time spent would be integral to my process of transforming myself into him,” Ranveer said in a statement. “I want to absorb as much as I can from him. His story, his experiences, his thoughts, feelings, his expressions, his energy,” says Ranveer.
Ranveer will spend three weeks with Kapil to get the mannerisms and attitude of the character right. He will also learn the veteran cricketer’s unique bowling style.
The much-awaited film will release on April 10, 2020. “83” is produced by Madhu Mantena, Vishnu Induri and Khan, and presented by Reliance Entertainment.
