Director Kabir Khan has worked with Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh recently in ’83. It is a sports drama on the life of former Indian cricket team captain and legendary pacer Kapil Dev. Highlight of the movie is the 1983 World Cup win by India at Lords, England. In this movie, Ranveeer Singh is playing the character of Kapil Dev whereas Deepika Padukone will be seen as his onscreen wife Romi Dev. It is the first time when Ranveer and Deepika will be seen together onscreen after their marriage. Shooting of the movie has been done mostly in London.
Talking about ’83, Kabir Khan has said during an interaction “It is a very exciting project for me because you know it’s an unbelievable story of the underdog. We all know the story of Kapil Dev and his devils. Ranveer has put in a lot of effort and it’s visible in the photographs that we released. I think more importantly we had a blast shooting it.”
Later on, Kabir has added “I always believe that the journey is as important as what happens to a film at the box office. I truly believe that if the journey is good, it always reflects in the goodwill about the film and it reflects on the screen. So, I am excited about bringing it out and showing it to the world.”
On asked about collaborating with Deepika and Ranveer together, Kabir has said “They are both gifted actors who bring incredible hard work to the table. Having both of them together in a film is a dream for every filmmaker. So, I’m privileged and lucky to get them together.”
Release of the movie ’83 is scheduled on 10th April, 2020.
