In the film, we will see Ranveer Singh essaying the role of Kapil Dev. The film will showcase how the Indian team defeated West Indies under the captaincy of then newbie Kapil Dev. It is about that day and all the events that lead to that moment of victory, tracking the coming of age of not just a cricketing team, but of a young nation in the eyes of the world.
Kapil Dev led India to the emphatic World Cup victory in 1983, and in Kabir Khan’s film, Ranveer Singh will be seen stepping into the shoes of Kapil Dev. Kapil has been a phenomenon who has inspired generations of people and Ranveer has delivered landmark performances with each movie.
Earlier in a statement, Kabir Khan had said, “As a young schoolboy when I watched India win the 1983 Cricket World Cup I had no idea that from that day onwards Cricket in India will change forever. As a filmmaker, for me, the journey to that win, filled with raw energy and sheer passion of that young Indian team, is probably one of the most exciting stories I have worked on. 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 finalizing the script.”
