Sajid Nadiadwala to co-produce Ranveer Singh's '83
Expected to go on floors this week, the film is scheduled to release on April 10, 2020, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu
Sajid Nadiadwala has come on board to co-produce Kabir Khan’s ‘83 with Madhu Mantena and Reliance Entertainment. Starring Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, the historical sports drama traces the victory of the Indian cricket team at the 1983 Cricket World Cup. Expected to go on floors this week, the film is scheduled to release on April 10, 2020, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
Besides ‘83, Sajid has teamed up with Madhu to produce three more films over the next three years. Says the producer, “All four scripts including that of ‘83 are excellent. As a producer one has to commit to the material in hand more than anything else. Coming on board for ‘83 is feeling of personal joy as I saw that glorious moment on live television but again it’s the script that has blown my mind. There are certain projects that develop an aura around them and ‘83 is one of those projects."
Announcing his new collaboration, Madhu, who was formerly a part of the dismantled Phantom Films, adds, "Sajid Nadiadwala is one of the most valuable anchors these films can get. He has an astute understanding of content and business and is completely hands-on as a producer. We will immensely benefit from this partnership.”
