In Kabir Khan’s next film Ranveer Singh is all set to play legendary Indian cricket captain Kapil Dev in a biopic. Trade guru Taran Adarsh shared the news on his Twitter account.
Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#BreakingNews: Ranveer Singh will turn cricketer #KapilDev in Kabir Khan’s sports-based film… #1983 #WorldCup.” The tweet also revealed that the biopics will be around the 1983 Cricket World Cup which India won.
Kapil Dev is an motivation to many and thus it will be interesting to see how well Ranveer Singh portrays the former captain on screen.
Kabir Khan said Ranveer Singh is the ideal choice to play the sports legend. Kabir 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, 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 finalising the script.”
