Recently, Ranveer Singh and the cast of ’83 came back to India after they wrapped up shooting for the movie in London. The cast even had a wrap-up party for the same which was hosted by Deepika Padukone.
Talking about the experience of shooting at the real-life locations like the Lords stadium, director Kabir Khan shared, “We shot for five days at the Lord’s stadium in London, entering the members-only Long Room where no camera had ventured before, the dressing rooms and locker rooms, then, stepped out on the balcony where the World Cup was presented to Kapil sir. And guess what? They brought out the real World Cup for Ranveer too. Overwhelmed, he broke down when I shouted “Cut”.
’83 traces the iconic win of the Indian cricket team at the 1983 World Cup final against West Indies as they made history with their maiden world cup win.
Ranveer Singh is playing the ace cricketer Kapil Dev, while Tahir Raj Bhasin plays Sunil Gavaskar, Saqib Saleema – Mohinder Amarnath, Chirag Patil – Sandeep Patil, and Deepika Padukone will be seen in a cameo avatar playing Romi, Kapil Dev’s wife.
’83 has a huge ensemble cast.
Touted to be the biggest sports film of Indian cinema, ’83 is being co-produced by Madhu Mantena, Sajid Nadiadwala and Reliance Entertainment.
The movie is slated to hit screens on 10 April 2020.
