      |

      Kabir Khan's 83 which starred Ranveer Singh as former Indian captain Kapil Dev released in theatres in December last year. However despite glowing reviews from the critics, the film failed to attract the audience towards the cinema halls. Further, the new restrictions related to COVID-19 in many states massively massively affecting the film's box office performance.

      The filmmaker said, "There are definitely moments of despair and disappointment, when everyday you wake up and read about another state going down, another state shutting down theatres, another state putting a night curfew. So, yes, there are moments of disappointment. But I never got to the position of feeling low just because of the sheer love that was coming our way. The whole day you'd end up just reading messages."

      He also recalled how Kapil Dev gave him a prep talk post the film's dismal performance at the box office. Khan said that the latter asked him to forget about the money and focus on the positivity which was coming his way.

      "Kapil sir, on the fourth day, when Delhi shut down, and it was like, let's fight back, he said, 'Kabir, you've already got your World Cup. This film that you've made is your World Cup. When we won the World Cup, we didn't get money, we got respect, and it is because of that respect you made this film on us," Kabir told Film Companion.
