Filmmaker Kabir Khan shared pictures of Ranveer Singh and cricketing legend, Sachin Tendulkar posing at the Lord’s Cricket Ground and confirmed that prep-mode has started for the upcoming sports biopic 83.
Kabir Khan captioned the picture, “Sachin was 9 years old when he saw on television Kapil’s Devils win the World Cup in 1983 right here at this ground. That win inspired him to want to play for India. 35 years later we kick off the prep for our film 83 at the Lords…Can’t get better than this can it? @ranveersingh @sachintendulkar#indiaenglandseries #lords #filmprep”
Ranveer looks every bit a dashing dude sporting a red blazer. The film, 83, revolves around India’s unexpected World Cup win and how Kapil was one of its main architects.
Apart from 83, actor Ranveer Singh is busy with Simmba, Gully Boy and recently announced Takht.
Karan Johar is returning to direction with Takht, which also boasts of a galaxy of other big names like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor. The film is an epic tale of love, war, betrayal, family and power, set in the Mughal era.
