Ranveer Singh Is Ready to Swing It Over the Boundary With ‘83’
Even as Simmba roars at the box office and Gully Boy readies for release midst growing excitement, Ranveer Singh has started prepping for the next challenge. The actor, who will be reportedly training with Kapil Dev who he would be playing in the upcoming 83, was spotted visiting a cricket field with director Kabir Khan.
Ranveer also took to social media to share a silhouette photograph of himself as a batsman ready to strike:
Though there have been no official announcements, Deepika Padukone may essay the role of Romi Bhatia, Kapil Dev’s wife in 83, while Nawazuddin Siddiqui might play his coach.
Kabir Khan had earlier said that his film is not a biopic on Dev, who led the Indian team to win the World Cup in 1983, but the victory itself.
