Ranveer Singh’s upcoming film ‘83 has been the talk of the town since quite some time. The Kabir Singh directed film is based on India’s 1983 World Cup victory. It’s now being reported that the final match of the 1983 cricket World Cup will be shot at the Lord’s and it will happen after the present edition of ICC Cricket World Cup wraps up on July 14.
According to a report in Mid-Day, a source from the creative team of the film has said, “Kabir has designed the schedule in such a way that the unit will finish filming pivotal matches by mid-July. By then, the ongoing World Cup will wrap up. The unit will then head to Lord’s to shoot the 1983 World Cup final, which forms the climax of the sports drama.”
Confirming Deepika Padukone joining the team in England, the source further added, “It is well-known that Romi had walked out of the stadium midway, assuming that India would lose the match. She then tried re-entering the ground when India started taking wickets but was unable to do so as she had given her pass away. This anecdote will be shown on screen.”
Ranveer had recently celebrated 36 years of India’s World Cup victory by sharing a video of the making of the film on Instagram with the caption, “36 years ago on this day, India turned the world upside down!!! #ThisIs83 @83thefilm @kabirkhankk.”
Directed by Kabir Khan, the film is scheduled to hit theatres on April 10 next year. The film will also see Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Jiiva, Ammy Virk, Harrdy Sandhu, Pankaj Tripathi, Saqib Saleem, Sahil Khattar and Chirag Patil in pivotal roles.
