Ranveer Singh is all set to play the role of Kapil Dev in Kabir Khan’s ’83 which is based on India’s victory at World Cup in 1983. Ranveer along with other actors in the film have been training to play the role of a cricketer and now, it has been revealed that the movie will go on floors on 5th June 2019 in Glasgow.
The shooting of the film will take place at a local cricket club in the Scottish port city for a week, and then the team will move to popular locations like Dulwich college in London, Edinburgh cricket club, Nevill Ground at Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent and the Oval cricket ground.
A source told a tabloid, “The team has been having marathon meetings every day and all the actors, who had been training regularly for two hours, have been putting in extra time before the shoot begins. Ranveer was recently in Delhi to spend time with Kapil Dev before getting into his shoes and the former cricketer is also expected to drop in on the sets.”
Director Kabir Singh said, “Since it’s a real-life story, this film involved a lot of training and research. Now that it’s going on the floors, starting with the Glasgow schedule, everyone’s excited to recreate a journey that made history, all thanks to our cricketing heroes of the ‘83 team.”
The movie is slated to hit the screens in April 2020. Reportedly, Deepika Padukone will be seen opposite Ranveer in the film. However, the makers are yet to make an announcement about it.
