Ranveer Singh was last seen in the Zoya Akhtar directorial Gully Boy that became a box office hit this year. The actor has lately been shooting for his next, Kabir Khan’s ’83, where he will be seen portraying the role of former captain of Indian cricket team during 1983 World Cup, Kapil Dev. The legendary cricketer is also known as 'Harayana Hurricane'. The team of ’83 is shooting in Mumbai right now.
The director Kabir Khan in an interview with an online portal praises Ranveer by saying, “Ranveer is one of those gifted people who can turn into any character. If you see his last few roles, it’s difficult to believe they are all played by one person. He has spent a lot of time with Kapil Dev in Delhi and has beautifully picked up his persona. More than the make-up, his expressions have done the work.”
In the film we will also get to see Deepika Padukone as Ranveer’s on-screen wife Romi Dev. Besides the Padmaavat actors, the film also features Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Ammy Virk, Harrdy Sandhu, Jiva, Sahil Khattar, Chirag Patil, Adinath Kothare, Dhairya Karwa, Dinker Sharma, Jatin Sarna, Nishant Dahiya, R Badree, Pankaj Tripathi and Zakir Hussain in vital roles. The film is scheduled to release on April 10, 2020.
