Ranveer Singh has turned into quite the cricket enthusiast since he began prepping for his next film, 83 which is based on the life of the legendary cricketer, Kapil Dev. Ranveer Singh, who will be seen playing the role of Kapil in the film, has happily let the sport take over his life. After spending 10 days at Kapil Dev's home in order to adopt the mannerisms and characteristics of the cricketer, Ranveer decided to attend the latest match where India played against Pakistan for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
After India's epic win against Pakistan, the actor was seen consoling a Pakistani fan, Aatif Nawaz who is a British comedian. In the video posted by Aatif, the actor hugs him and says, "Put it there. There's always a next time. Don't be disheartened. You played well. The boys are committed, dedicated, professional, and they'll be back."
Apart from being a great sport, Ranveer Singh was also a true fan-boy on the field, posting pictures with his favourite cricketers and spamming his followers!
Ranveer shared a picture in which he is hugging the captain of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli, with the caption, "Ive been a die-hard fan of Indian cricket since childhood. Invested so much emotion into our beloved team. Willing and wanting them to be the undisputed best in the world. And then, there was VIRAT KOHLI. Ive witnessed a brash boy evolve into the very embodiment of class. Displaying a rare brand of ferocity and passionate expression, he changed the face of Indian cricket forever. He’s well on his way to being hailed as the greatest of all time. Leading our country like a true alpha warrior. Yeh naya India hai, aur yeh banda naye India ka Hero hai. We are proud of you, Kaptaan. 🇮🇳 @virat.kohli"
