Mumbai: Ranveer Singh is now gearing up for his mega project based on 1983 cricket world cup, the biopic of Kapil Dev. The movie which will be directed by Kabir Khan is currently in the process of getting the right cast and crew. While it will be a male dominate film as it is about the Indian men’s cricket team, we hear a few A-list actresses have been approached for some pivotal roles and Katrina Kaif happens to be one of them.
“Katrina is in the run to play one of the prime female characters. Kabir shares an excellent rapport with Katrina and has approached her for an important role in the film. She is yet to say yes though. What has got her excited apart from the script is also the fact that she will get a chance to act with Ranveer Singh who is a ruling superstar, currently post Simmba,”
says a source.
Sources say that the makers are going slow with the casting as they want the right mix of actors to be part of the prestigious project. They are currently scouting for talent down south too to get the correct combination. One will have to wait and see if 83 will bring together Katrina and Ranveer on screen for the first time. But even if it does, it won’t be a romantic pairing.
