The movie ’83 is about Kapil Dev leading team India to win the 1983 World Cup against West Indies. Alongside Ranveer, the movie has a studded star cast of Tahir Raj Bhasin, Hardy Sandhu, Churag Patil, and Ammy Virk among many others.
As the shooting of the film came to an end, director Kabir Khan shared his feeling on the ‘win’ moment by saying, “We shot for five days at the Lord’s stadium in London, entering the members-only Long Room where no camera had ventured before, the dressing rooms and locker rooms, then, stepped out on the balcony where the World Cup was presented to Kapil sir. And guess what? They brought out the real World Cup for Ranveer too. Overwhelmed, he broke down when I shouted ‘Cut’”.
Khan also said that he needed Ranveer to embody Kapil Dev’s spirit and not just create a ‘lookalike’. He did not go for the route of VFX to do it, said ‘In the last few films, Ranveer’s lived his roles. It’s a rare gift he has, along with the effort he puts in. Even in our film, after 10 minutes you’ll forget it’s Ranveer on screen’.
