Kabir Khan and Ranveer Singh will team up for the very first time for ‘83, which revolves around the Indian cricket team’s victory at the 1983 World Cup and we finally have the release date of the film.
Madhu Mantena of Phantom Films revealed, “We are extremely proud to be a part of ’83. It is a story waiting to be told. I am sure the audience across the globe will love the film when it releases on April 5, 2019.”
Director 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.”
Ranveer will play Kapil Dev in the film, which will be shot in London.
