Ranveer Singh to play Kapil Dev


As a filmmaker, the journey to that win filled with raw energy and sheer passion of that young Indian team is probably one of the most exciting stories I have worked on. It is also believed that Ranveer's close friend, Arjun Kapoor was the makers' first choice for the former Indian all rounder's role. It was the time when the cricket team of the country was still getting better at the English game and thus, will always be special despite us claiming the cup again in 2011.

Confirming the news, producer Vishnu, said, "Yes, I am trying to make this film since the last three-and-a-half years and I have now got a combination of Ranveer Singh and Kabir Khan". Also, Kabir Khan's films are known to have a war or socio-political backdrop - as was his recent Tubelight which was based on Indo-Sino war of 1962. Knowing that Kabir Khan is directing this movie, who has given gems like "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and "Ek Tha Tiger", this movie will be something to watch out for. Shouldered by Kapil Dev, the then captain, the Indian team lifted its maiden World Cup trophy in 1983 - an event which remains one of the most memorable events in the minds of the cricket fans. Director Kabir Khan wants to trace this important period in the history of Indian Cricket which is the most popular sport in India.
