While the makers of the film 83’ are gearing up for the film’s release, they shared another still from the film. The biggest sports drama of the year, 83’ has already managed to garner a lot of public attention since its inception. And, on Saturday, the makers dropped another iconic 83 world cup lifting moment.
Ranveer Singh, who portrays the iconic character of former India captain Kapil Dev, took to his official Instagram handle to share a picture in which he can be seen lifting the glorious world cup trophy as he sports the uncanny resemblance to the real-life captain.
Alongside the picture, he wrote, “#ThisIs83 (sic).”
In 1983, the Indian Cricket Team won the Cricket World Cup in England. This was the first time ever that any team apart from the West Indies ever won the world cup. And, it was the first time ever, that an Indian team won any prestigious tournament.
Recently, the real and reel squad of 83‘ visited Chennai alongside ace director Kabir Khan and the sports extravaganza unfolded there with the official first look launch that took place. From travelling in a bus with “Kapil’s devils” written all over it to dancing their hearts out amidst confetti, the event in Chennai was a blockbuster.
This poster definitely brings a smile to each one of our faces and Ranveer Singh acing the look already has gotten us all- rooting for the reel life 83’ squad as they recreate the glorious moment on-screen.
