Get ready to see Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev

83 stars Padmavati star Ranveer Singh in the lead role as Kapil Dev, the then captain of the Indian cricket team and it is being helmed by Kabir Khan of Bajrangi Bhaijaan fame. According to a report, the director puts down the World Cup victory a game-changing moment for Indian cricket.

"As a young schoolboy, when I watched India win the 1983 Cricket World Cup, I had no idea that from that day onwards, cricket in India will change forever. As a film-maker, for me, the journey to that win, filled with raw energy and sheer passion of that young Indian team, is probably one of the most exciting stories I have worked on. And it's great to have Ranveer come on board to play Kapil Dev, as honestly, I could see no one else for the role ever since I started finalising the script." The film's release date has been announced to be April 5, 2019.
