Ranveer Singh starrer ‘83 has created the loudest buzz and has become one of the most anticipated films of the year. Adding more to the build up, director Kabir Khan did an Instagram Live session with Boman Irani where they shared interesting anecdotes about the shoot.
While spilling beans over many things, Kabir also opened up on how Clive Lloyd, Former Captain of West Indies team, was also present when they where shooting the pivotal scene where Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev lifts up the trophy. He also revealed how Clive humorously refused to watch the filming of the scene.
While shooting for the scene when Kabir asked Clive to come closer so he can witness it better, Clive in a humorous reply said, “You want me to see that cup going away for the second time and that too from near?”
Meanwhile, for the unversed, Clive Lloyd’s son plays the cricketer in the film. Giving further anecdotes Kabir recalled how Malcom Marshall’s son Mali who is playing his father’s character in the film, when ran in to bowl Addinath Kothare who plays Dilp Vengsarkar, he left him hurt. Interestingly in the real tournament that happened in 1983, Malcom’s ball had injured Vengsarkar for real, due to which the Indian player was away from the rest of the matches.
