Ranveer Singh-starrer 83 is scheduled to hit theatres on 24 December. However, early reviews for the film are in and almost everyone is full of praises for the Kabir Khan directorial. Actor Suniel Shetty wrote a note for the film on social media. He wrote that he went to watch Ranveer Singh but there ‘was only Kapil Dev on screen.’


“Went to watch @RanveerOfficial in #83. Couldn’t spot him. There was only #KapilDev on screen. Incredible transformation. I am stunned beyond. A team cast that could’ve walked off Lords. Got gooseflesh like I was reliving ‘83. Still shaken & teary-eyed at the artistry & emotions,” Shetty wrote.

The actor added, “Sheer belief. That’s what it is. The goodness of being @kabirkhankk The faith in his story & the power of his scenes & characters. Blew my socks off. And the backing of #SajidNadiadwala @WardaNadiadwala in a project that’s a personal tale. The tears are real.”
