Ranveer Singh confirms working with director Kabir Khan. He will be seen as legendary cricketer Kapil Dev in Kabir Khan’s sport-based film. The story is about India’s moment of pride and glory at the historic win in the 1983 World Cup. Since his debut in 2010 with ‘Band Baaja Baarat’, Ranveer has essayed many different roles that gained him status of versatile actor.
Kapil Dev is an inspiration to many and thus it will be interesting to see how well Ranveer Singh portrays the former captain on screen.
Talking about the biopic, Kabir Khan said, “Ranveer Singh is the perfect choice to play the sports character. And it’s great to have Ranveer come on board to play Kapil Dev, as honestly, I could see no one else for the role, ever since I started finalising the script.”
To be directed by Kabir Khan, the film will recreate the most memorable moment of the Indian cricket history that gave the country its first world cup trophy.
Ranveer Singh is currently busy for the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ with Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor and also busy with Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy’ in which he will be seen opposite Alia Bhatt for the first time.
