On former Indian cricketer Kapil Dev’s 34th birthday, Ranveer Singh has presented a befitting tribute sharing first look of his upcoming movie ’83 in which the star dons the role of Kapil Dev who led India to first world cup victory.
Taking to Twitter, Ranveer Singh wrote: “On my special day, here’s presenting the Haryana Hurricane Kapil Dev.”
In the picture, the actor donning a white jersey looks convincing with his wavy hair and moustache as he recreates the all-rounder’s bowling action. Directed by Kabir Khan, the film will chronicle India’s win under Kapil’s captainship, when the team defeated West Indies in the final to clinch their first-ever World Cup trophy in 1983.
Produced by Madhu Mantena, Vishnu Induri and Kabir, and presented by Reliance Entertainment, the film is scheduled to be released on April 10, 2020. Bollywood star Deepika Padukone will essay the role of Kapil’s spouse Romi Dev in the film.
The actor, who has impressed audiences with his transformation as Peshwa Bajirao and Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opuses, has once again impressed the audience with his version of the former Indian skipper.
