Excitement surrounding ’83 is increasing with each passing day. Ranveer Singh, who will be seen playing Kapil Dev in the film, is busy prepping for the film. The actor has been keeping us updated with posts on his social media accounts about his training sessions.
The latest development is that Sajid Nadiadwala’s Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment has come onboard to co-produce the film. “All four scripts, including ’83, are excellent. As a producer, one has to commit to the material on hand, more than anything else. Coming onboard for the sports biopic gives me a feeling of personal joy because I witnessed that glorious and historical moment of India’s 1983 World Cup win on television. But then again, it’s the script of this film that has blown my mind. There are certain projects that have an aura around them. ’83 is one of those movies,” he said.
Madhu Mantena, who is producing the film, is glad to have Nadiadwala onboard. He said, “Sajid Nadiadwala is one of the most valuable anchors these films can get. He has an astute understanding of content and business and is a completely hands-on producer. We will benefit immensely from this partnership.”
The film directed by Kabir Khan is being produced by Reliance Entertainment in association with Vibri Media and Kabir Khan Films. Saqib Saleem, Ammy Virk, Hardy Sandhu, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Adinath Kothare and Pankaj Tripathi will be seen in pivotal roles.’83 will hit the screens on April 10, 2020.
