Kabir Khan has already completed the scripting of the film. He has hailed Ranveer Singh as the perfect choice to portray the sports legend.

The director said:

“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 finalising the script.”

Khan also recalled his memories from the historic event:

“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 victory is filled with raw energy and sheer passion of that young Indian team, and is probably one of the most exciting stories I have worked on.”

Producer Vishnu Vardhan Induri said that it was their dream of making movie on the incredible journey of the Indian cricket team during the 1983 World Cup.

Vikramaditya Motwane of Phantom Films shared, “1983 is the greatest Indian underdog sports story ever and we’re delighted to be making it with Kabir and Ranveer. Taking on the mantle of playing a legend like Kapil Dev isn’t easy but if any actor can do it, it’s Ranveer. I’m sure his portrayal is going to be endearing and brilliant and we can’t wait to see it on screen.”

Ranveer Singh who has treated the audience with his power-packed performances in previous films will play a sports personality for the first time.
