Ranveer Singh will be seen portraying the role of Kapil Dev, the World Cup winning captain from 1983, in a film directed by Kabir Khan. The film will revolve around the surprising win for the country as they dethroned West Indies as the champions.
Speaking on the same, Kabir stated, "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.” Confirming Ranveer's presence he added, “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 finalising the script.”
