Ranveer Singh and the team of 83′ recently wrapped up the shooting of the film and also celebrated it with a huge bash. Recently, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, director Kabir Singh spoke about the film at lenght and revealed the scene that made Ranveer Singh break down.
Talking about recreating the World Cup win, Kabir said, “We shot for five days at the Lord’s stadium in London, entering the members only Long Room where no camera had ventured before, the dressing rooms and locker rooms, then, stepped out on the balcony where the World Cup was presented to Kapil sir. And guess what? They brought out the real World Cup for Ranveer (Singh, who is playing Kapil Dev in the film) too. Overwhelmed, he broke down when I shouted ‘Cut’.”
“Among those on the balcony was also Clive Lloyd’s son who, like Gordan Greenidge and Malcolm Marshall’s sons, is playing his father in the film. We had legends like Kapil Dev, Gavaskar to Vivian Richards dropping by. That day, Clive Lloyd, captain of the ’83 West Indian team which had crashed to 140 all out to give Kapil us an unlikely win, was there to support his son. When we urged him to come closer, he quipped that he didn’t want to see the Cup being given away for the second time in his life,” he added.
Well, we are sure it would have been a very emotional moment for Ranveer to hold the real World Cup in his hands.
Also starring Deepika Padukone, 83′ is slated to release on 10th April 2020.
