After tasting back to back success, Ranveer Singh is in no mood to slow down as he starts his prep for Kabir Khan’s ‘83’ in full swing. The actor will be wearing the shoes of Kapil Dev in the film and fans are just too damn excited to see the man showing his skills on the pitch.
Talking about the film, Ranveer said: “The film’s story is one of the most glorious chapters in our nation’s sporting history. Kabir (Khan) director and I were discussing that we don’t have to do much there. You just tell the story, and it has got everything — a spectacular, unreal tale. There’s an entire generation who doesn’t know about it — how they did it and the fashion in which they achieved the victory.”
The film will try to cover each and everything that went in to create the 1983 World Cup’s historic victory. Ranveer also commented on him playing the role of Kapil Dev, he said: “I’m hoping to become his shadow. I will follow him wherever he goes and try to pick as much as possible from him. I hope to get some tips on bowling and batting from the man himself. I have never done this before. This will be a first for me, a unique process of spending time with the person I play on screen.”
Apart from Ranveer Singh, the film also features actors like Ammy Virk, Sahil Khattar, Harrdy Sandhu, Saqib Saleem, Pankaj Tripathi and Tahir Raj Bhasin in pivotal roles.
