Ranveer Singh is currently shooting for the upcoming Kapil Dev Biopic titled ’83. And as the movie is treading ahead with its shoot and everything, Ranveer keeps his fans updated by posting several developments with the team on his social media.
Kapil Dev, Former Indian Cricket Captain got home India’s very first World Cup beating West Indies in England in 1983. The man put us on the cricketing map, after which, India, as a team was taken seriously. His contribution as an all-rounder, as a Captain, to Indian Cricket is amazing. To tell this inspiring story on the big screen, the Bajrangi Bhaijaan director Kabir Khan has been handed over the job.
Currently, the entire cast is in London, working on the first schedule of the movie. Among the many pictures that the Simmba actor has been posting, the ones that had Legendary cricketers, Sachin Tendulkar and Sir Vivian Richards caught our attention the most. Singh posted a couple of photos and selfies with the two. Here, have a look at the posts:
Earlier, Kabir Khan, during a conversation with the media, had revealed that the movie will not have lip sync songs for obvious reasons and we will not see Ranveer dancing but still, the music is being highly focused upon, as it is very important for any film in Bollywood. He said,
“In ’83’, the music will be definitely important. It’s a sports film so the music will be motivational. There will be obviously a motivating anthem and songs of several mood in the film. But there won’t be any lip-sync songs because I don’t think audience will accept Kapil Dev singing on the streets of London. But needless to say it’ll be an energetic background score and album,”
Reportedly, the movie will also star Deepika Padukone in the role of Kapil’s wife Romi Bhatia. Roping in the duo after almost a year can work in favour of the film in great measures. The source, about Deepika’s role said,
“Deepika has a good role because she plays Kapil’s wife Romi Bhatia who was also a pageant winner. In fact, as far as the story goes, she had left the stadium after India started losing the wickets. But when she heard that they are on the verge of winning the World Cup, she came back to the stadium. That part is extremely dramatic. Also, the film will delve into the relationship between the husband and wife, their love story.”
Ranveer and Deepika, so far have been seen in intense romantic dramas so far and it will nice to see them getting in the skin of light-hearted yet extremely important characters. Deepika Padukone will not only be starring in the movie but will also be co-producing it.
‘83 will also feature stars like Saqib Saleem, Ammy Virk, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jiva, Sahil Khattar, Harrdy Sandhu, Chirag Patil and Pankaj Tripathi in major roles. The movie will be extensively shot in England and Scotland, where the tournament took place, over around 100 days. The budget is known to be as huge as 100 crores which raise our expectations definitely to another level. The makers are eyeing to release ‘83 in the first quarter of 2020 and chances are that it’ll get the release date of April 10, 2020.
