Kabir Khan’s 83 has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The film, which stars Ranveer Singh in the lead role, was scheduled to hit the screens on April 11. However, in keeping with government advisories on restricting exposure, the makers have decided to release the film on a later date.
“In the wake of the risks posed by the recent outbreak of COVID-19 and the growing health concerns, the release of 83 has been put on hold,” read a statement.
“We will take a decision regarding the next course of action once the conditions return to normal. We urge our fans to take all necessary precautions and take care of their loved ones. 83 is a film about fighting the odds and we hope we will all bounce back from this soon,” it added.
83 celebrates the Indian cricket team’s historic win at the 1983 World Cup. Ranveer essays the role of cricket legend Kapil Dev. The film also stars Deepika Padukone as Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev.
