Ranveer Singh is ready to surprise the audience with his impeccable performance in Kabir Khan ’83. The first look was revealed on the actor’s birthday and his striking resemblance to the captain of the former Indian cricket team is rather astonishing. Today, as Kapil Dev celebrates his birthday, he gave an interview to a major daily and shared more about what awaits us in the film and what he thinks of Ranveer playing it on the big screen.
Kapil Dev revealed that he was concerned about Ranveer’s dedication to learning the sport as an expert and his dedicated preparation for doing the right thing. Kapil said, “I would see him (Ranveer Singh) working so hard at bowling, he would play and play for eight hours continuously to understand the rhythm, and would do it at the height of summer. In such conditions, even cricketers avoid training to avoid injury. So, I feared for his physical form. Ranveer told me he wanted to be with me. I don’t know what he was trying to study – my actions, my way of speaking or my pronunciation. During the 10 day stay, he was on a diet because he had to lose weight. He also practiced with me during this period. ”
Kapil Dev even said the film would show audiences what cricketers are facing at board meetings and the stress they face before a game. Ranveer will be seen alongside Deepika Padukone in this film, and the actress also co-produced ’83.
