Ranveer Singh Is All Set To Play Kapil Dev In A New Kabir Khan Movie

What’s better than knowing we won the 1983 Cricket World Cup? Watching it onscreen since most of us weren’t alive when it was actually happening. Good news is that Ranveer Singh and Kabir Khan are working towards making this happen for us!

Ranveer Singh will be playing Kapil Dev in 83, a Kabir Khan movie which will chronicle the story of India’s historic World Cup win. Reliance Entertainment, Phantom Films, Vibri Media, and Kabir Khan Films, announced the release date on Sunday as April 5, 2019.

In a statement, Kabir Khan said “As a young schoolboy, when I watched India win the 1983 Cricket World Cup, I had no idea that from that day onwards cricket in India will change forever. As a filmmaker, for me, the journey to that win, filled with raw energy and sheer passion of that young Indian team, is probably one of the most exciting stories I have worked on. And it’s great to have Ranveer come on board to play Kapil Dev, as honestly, I could see no one else for the role, ever since I started finalizing the script.”

Shibasish Sarkar, Chief Operating Officer, Reliance Entertainment, also added, “Winning the ‘83 cricket World Cup was a very proud moment for us as Indians and we at Reliance Entertainment aim to bring back those glorious moments for the current and future generations through this film.”

We cannot wait to see Ranveer Singh on the big screen as a young Kapil Dev who led the team to victory against West Indies!
