From Band Baaja Baraat to Simmba, Ranveer Singh has always had experimental roles to play on screen. With his upcoming release of Gully Boy where the actor will be seen playing the role of a rapper, Ranveer has yet again got an opportunity to play another challenging role for his forthcoming movie ’83 directed by Kabir Khan.
The movie is an onscreen depiction of the significant cricket victory that the Indian team achieved in the world cup of 1983 captained by respected cricketer of the time, Kapil Dev. Ranveer, in the movie, will be seen playing the role of Kapil Dev. For the same, the actor has recently shared the first look on his Instagram handle where he can be seen trying a shot. The actor captioned the image saying, “And the glorious journey begins…….. #83 ? #kapildev @83thefilm #balwindersinghsandhu @kabirkhankk.”
Simmba actor last year spoken to PTI saying, “It is an important part of our sports history and history as a nation, our first world cup win and it had put us on top of the world, stamped our presence on the map.” India defeated West Indies, victors of the first two world cups, in the tournament by 43 runs to clinch the trophy.” “I always wanted to be part of a film where the take away would be that sense of national pride. The story of underdogs’ triumph is completely lost. There is a whole generation that needs to know and I am happy to be fronting it,” he further said.
He further expressed that the role he has to play in the movie is a huge role with utter importance and significance.
On a relatable note, the actor was previously seen in Rohit Shetty’s directorial Simmba starring against the debutant of previous year Sara Ali Khan. The movie proved to be one of the biggest hits of the previous year and within 2 weeks of its release; it was successful to collect 200 crores. Furthermore, the trailer of his upcoming movie Gully Boy has come out recently. Ranveer will be seen starring against Highway actress Alia Bhatt in the movie. The movie will hit the theatres on 14 February 2018.
