Actor Ranveer Singh shared a picture from his upcoming film ’83, which is based on India’s 1983 Cricket World Cup win. Kapil Dev led the team to the victory and lifted the first ever Cricket World Cup for the country. Ranveer will be seen as Kapil Dev in the film. The actor shared a picture in the famous ‘Natraj Shot’ pose, which was popularised by Kapil Dev. It was one of the most devastating shots he played against fast bowlers.
Director Kabir Khan also took to Instagram to share the photograph and wrote, “The match that was never televised… a world record innings that India never saw… this April the world will see how history was made on that cold windy day in Tunbridge Wells… #RanveerAsKapil (sic).”
Ranveer’s picture has got a thumbs up from Kapil Dev himself. The legendary cricketer retweeted Ranveer’s post and wrote, “Hats off, Ranveer.”
