While the first look series of 83’ is making a lot of buzz, the makers have unveiled a new poster featuring Sahil Khattar who plays the role of Syed Kirmani in the film.

One of the most prolific wicket-keepers of our country, Syed Kirmani is a sporting legend and one of India’s original cricketing mavericks.

On Sunday, Sahil took to his official Instagram account to share the poster with a heartfelt note that spoke on how cricket happened to him. Sharing the poster, he wrote, “Background music starts -*Kiri Bhai Kiri Bhai ayva chhe…dhoom dhadaka lavya chhe* Whoever coined the phrase “Catches win Matches” was obviously looking at the Super athletic “Syed Mujtaba Hussain Kirmani” diving away to glory. That’s why it’s also said “Is it a bird ? Is it a Plane ? No, It’s Syed Kirmani !!!” While cricketing came naturally to me, wicket keeping was an alien skill, but all thanks to @inswingsandhu and the sporting background of Roller Hockey… That I could even come close to playing this enigmatic, sauve and stylish icon. Debuting with this film as the “Hawkeye Backbone of Team 83” is a dream come true as it doesn’t get bigger than this Background Music Stops (sic).”
