Ranveer Singh’s '83 to be a trilingual
Directed by Kabir Khan, the upcoming sports drama will be shot simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu
Kabir Khan’s upcoming film ’83 — based on the Indian cricket team’s historic win at the 1983 Cricket World Cup held in England and Wales — will be released in three languages, the makers announced yesterday. The sports drama film stars Ranveer Singh in the role of former Indian captain Kapil Dev.
“The film will be presented in three languages — Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. It’s a first for both Kabir Khan and Ranveer Singh. ’83 is a story that needs to be presented across boundaries, hence the idea and reason to shoot for the Tamil and Telugu versions simultaneously. The film will be released pan-India during the Good Friday weekend on April 10, 2020,” said a source.
It was recently revealed that Tamil actor Jiiva has been approached to portray batsman Krishnamachari Srikkanth in the film. The casting process for the remaining players is going on. The 1983 winning squad was also comprised of Mohinder Amarnath, Sunil Gavaskar, Roger Binny, and Ravi Shastri, among others.
