He is the powerhouse of energy and someone who literally walk, talk, eat, and sleep movies. He has done a variety of roles but never played a sportsperson, until now.
Still no guesses…
We are talking about Ranveer Singh and this will be his first sports film. And that too a film on India’s unforgettable glorious victory against West Indies at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
Well, we are waiting for an official announcement about Ranveer playing India’s skipper Kapil, but when contacted, Ranveer Singh’s spokesperson told, “It’s too early to confirm anything with regards to Ranveer Singh playing Kapil Dev. An announcement will be made by the production house as and when everything is finalized.”
The film is supposed to be produced by Phantom Films. Madhu Mantena, one of the producers at Phantom is very close to the cricketers (his wife Masaba is Sir Vivian Richards’s daughter), and he will apparently take the official rights from the players involved in the iconic India vs West Indies 1983 finals.
