Filmmaker Kabir Khan is all set to impress one and all with one of his most ambitious projects, ‘’83’. Ranveer Singh will be seen stepping into the shoes of popular legendary veteran cricketer Kapil Dev in the film and the superstar is all set to bring back epic triumph of team India in the 83 World Cup. Speaking about the much-awaited film, Kabir Khan exclusively told ETimes, “’83’ is definitely a very exciting project for me because you know it’s an unbelievable story of the underdog. We all know the story of Kapil Dev and his devils. Ranveer has put in a lot of effort and it’s visible in the photographs that we released. I think more importantly we had a blast shooting it. I always believe that the journey is as important as what happens to a film at the box office. I truly believe that if the journey is good, it always reflects in the goodwill about the film and it reflects on the screen. So, I am really excited about bringing it out and showing it to the world.”
Deepika Padukone all set to feature opposite her husband for the first time post their marriage, the film is one of the most-awaited sports drama of 2020. Talking about working with Ranveer and Deepika, Kabir added, “They are both gifted actors who bring incredible hard work to the table. Having both of them together in a film is a dream for every filmmaker. So, I’m really privileged and lucky to get them together.”
The film boasts of an ensemble star cast that includes, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Boman Irani, Harrdy Sandhu, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Amrita Puri, Jiiva, Ammy Virk, Pankaj Tripathi, Sahil Khattar and Chirag Patil.
