Actor turned politician Kamal Haasan will be presenting the Tamil version of Bollywood movie 83, a biopic of legendary cricketer Kapil Dev based on the landmark win of the Indian Cricket team at the 1983 World Cup.
The actor’s home banner Raajkamal Films International, Reliance Entertainment and Y NOT Studios are joining hands for the K’town version.
Sharing his happiness, Kamal said, “I am extremely excited to present the Tamil version of 83. It’s a matter of pride to promote the film that will recreate the moments of the iconic matches. Not just that, the victory of the Indian team demonstrates to every Indian that ‘where there is a will, there is a way’. What was considered impossible was made possible purely due to belief and conviction. And this holds true in all walks of life. It’s my pride to promote a film that stands testimony to such conviction and will. I am happy to bring to my people the story of the team of inspired men captained by Kapil Dev who fought against all odds and won India’s greatest sporting triumph.”
Directed by Kabir Khan, Ranveer Singh will be seen playing Kapil Dev, while his real-life wife Deepika Padukone will essay his reel-life one, reprising Romi. Jiiva has been roped in to portray legendary cricketer Krishnamachari Srikkanth....
