Kabir Khan’s film is about India’s spectacular and rather unexpected win at the 1983 cricket World Cup, where they beat the tournament favourite, West Indies. Kapil Dev, the captain of the Indian cricket team, was largely responsible in motivating the team to aim for glory and led by example. The film will also see Deepika Padukone in a small but significant role as Romi Dev.
Ranveer, who will be seen as Kapil, has prepared long and hard to get into the skin of his character. His first look was unveiled in July last year, on the occasion of his birthday. The actor, along with other actors, had undergone training in Dharamshala last year. Ranveer also spent time with Kapil at his residence to pick up the nuances of his personality, the result of which is quite visible in another still of the film was released, sometime last year, where Ranveer can be seen playing Kapil’s iconic Natraj shot.
83 is expected to hit the screens later this year. The film was shot in England on a start-to-finish routine.
