After Azhar and M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, gear up for yet another film on cricket. A couple of days back, there was a buzz about Phantom Productions doing a film on India's glorious victory at the 1983 World Cup with Kabir Khan helming the film.
A Mumbai Mirror report had quoted a source saying, "It goes on the floors later this year, as soon as Kabir wraps up the in-progress Tubelight with Salman Khan. A-list actors who play the cricketing heroes are in the process of being finalised. Kapil Dev, Madan Lal, Mohinder Amarnath, Kirti Azad, Krishmachari Srikkanth, Syed Kirmani, Yashpal Sharma, Balwinder Sandhu and even Sunil Gavaskar who had to skip the earlier meet because it was his 67th birthday, will be on board as mentors to the actors."
Now, the latest development that we hear is that the makers have approached Ranveer Singh for this film. A source added, "Ranveer has been approached for Kabir's cricket film and if all goes well after completing Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati the actor might start working on this project."
If reports are to be believed then the makers had earlier approached Arjun Kapoor for this movie but things didn't work out.
Currently Kabir is busy working on Salman Khan starrer Tubelight whereas Ranveer has started filming for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati.
