As reported earlier, 83, which is touted to be a period sports drama, revolves around the Indian cricket team's world cup win of 1983. Ranveer Singh is playing the role of Kapil Dev, the legendary cricketer who headed the Indian cricket team at the world cup, in the Kabir Khan directorial. The project will feature Ranveer's real-life spouse Deepika Padukone in the role of Kapil Dev's wife Romi Dev.
To the unversed, 83 was originally slated to hit the big screens in April 2020. But the Ranveer Singh starrer was delayed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Even though the film was rescheduled to get released in June 2021, it was delayed again due to the second wave of the pandemic. The movie will feature Pankaj Tripathi, Tamil actor Jiiva, Hardy Sandhu, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Ami Virk, and so on in the pivotal roles.
