Ranveer Singh will be stepping in the shoes of legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev in the film. ''83' serves as a biopic to the latter, but primarily puts emphasis on the historic victory.
(L-R) Members of the team like Kirti Azad, Roger Binny, Kapil Dev, Mohinder Amarnath and Yashpal Sharma pop a champagne bottle. The cricketers had won the World Cup at Lord's stadium in England.
Ranveer Singh poses with some of the memorabilia related to the historic World Cup victory. The actor was an apt choice for the role as he had an inclination towards the sport, having played it during school days.
Some of the others like Dilip Vengsarkar, Madan Lal, Sandeep Patil, Krishnamachari Srikkanth, Balwinder Singh Sandhu and members of the film pose together. Kabir Khan, who is the director of the film, and Vikas Bahl, Madhu Mantena, Vikramaditya Motwane, from Phantom Production house, can also be spotted in the picture.
