Mumbai: Ranveer Singh has started preparing for sports drama 83. The actor took to Instagram to share a glimpse of himself practising at the nets for the film, to be directed by Kabir Khan.
“And the glorious journey begins… #83 #kapildev @83thefilm #balwindersinghsandhu @kabirkhankk,” Singh captioned the photo on Saturday.
83 will chronicle India’s win under Kapil Dev’s captainship, when the Men in Blue defeated West Indies in the final to clinch their first-ever World Cup trophy in 1983.
Ranveer will play former Indian cricket skipper in the film, while former Indian Test cricketer Balwinder Singh Sandhu is training him for the role.
“Training begins… #83 #kapildev @ranveersingh @83thefilm #balwindersinghsandhu,” Khan wrote on social media sharing the same photo.
Touted as the “biggest sports film” of the country, the film slated to be released on April 10, 2020.
Ranveer, who is currently basking in the success of Simmba, has another release ready in Gully Boy, slated to hit the screens on February 14.
