The former Indian cricketer Kapil Dev helped India clinch its first World Cup in 1983 and Kabir Khan is all set to make a biopic on the same starring Ranveer Singh.
As part of trainings, Kapil Dev and members of the same team will be training Ranveer for the movie. As per a tabloid, the entire team will undergo some preparations for the same and a boot camp will be there.
Kabir Khan previously said that he has always appreciated Ranveer as an actor.
When Ranveer was questioned about his reaction on being offered the role of Kapil Dev, he specified, “I was born at the time when cricket was big time. When Kabir Sahab had come to me and said that there will be a film on 83, I was like finally. And when he was narrating it to me, I was like woooh. It is not a story just about cricket but a human story.”
He told to Kapil, “How am I going to do this? I am honoured that I will be a part of the biggest story.” And added, “Goosebumps and goosebumps in the second part of the film, right Kabir sir?”
Only Ranveer has been finalised for the role and Dev told that it will not be an easy task to make the 1983 squad. He told, “1983 ki team handle karna wasn’t easy, koshish karlo mushkil se milenge aise characters poori India mein.”
