Ranveer Singh recently shared a still from his upcoming movie, '83. The actor, who plays the role of former Indian cricket captain Kapil Dev (from the time India won the World Cup in '83) was gazing at the ball after hitting the legend's famous Natraj shot. Naturally, the internet couldn't stop comparing him with the legendary cricketer. Netizens loved him for getting the look right - from the moustache to the curly hair (good job done, team'83). Now, just like that post, the memes on the same picture are taking the Internet by storm.
Here's the picture that Ranveer shared:
This one has been a rather funny photoshop battle online. While some made it genuinely hilarious, others added a twist to the iconic pose. Many exchanged Ranveer's bat with different everyday items, making the memes relatable. From a mosquito racket to a mop, here's all that you can and cannot imagine.
Directed by Kabir Khan, '83 is a glorious tale of the Indian Cricket Team winning the World Cup for the first time ever in 1983. It was a special victory that still holds close to our hearts since we broke the domination of West Indies and that too, on the British turf.
Ranveer's real-life wifey, Deepika Padukone, will also be seen in a special role in the movie, essaying the role of Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev. The movie is slated for release next year on April 10.
