A biopic on Kapil Dev the man who lead our First ever World Cup victory in 1983, titled '1983' when team India lifted the most prestigious Cricket trophy first time ever. The makers have locked Ranveer Singh to play the titular role of Kapil Dev and ever since the actor is going through rigorous cricket sessions to get the batting stance right.
The makers of 83 recently dropped an announcement video that had the iconic figures - Sunil Gavaskar, Bishan Singh Bedi, Mohinder Amarnath, Krishnamachari Srikkanth, Dilip Vengserkar and the entire team to count on. The makers shared the montage of these players and announced that the reel life heroes will be out soon.
Sharing the announcement video, Reliance Entertainment who is bankrolling the project shared the video and captioned "it's time to relive the glory days again! Gear up for the unveiling of the #CastOf83. @ranveersingh @kabirkhankk @83thefilm @mantenamadhu @vishnuinduri #Relive83."
A source had earlier revealed, "83 will also be made in Tamil and Telugu thereby making it Ranveer's first trilingual film. Our heroic win in the 1983 World Cup is a historical event in Post-Independence India. Considering that cricket and movies are akin to religion in the country, and are bound to resonate with audiences across ages and strata, the film’s producers have decided to shoot for the Tamil and Telugu versions simultaneously."
