The makers of the Ranveer Singh starrer ’83 wrapped up the final shooting schedule for the movie in Mumbai recently. As a special treat for the fans, here’s a glimpse of Ranveer Singh in the iconic Natraj pose, playing at the Tunbridge Wells ground where Kapil Dev scored 175 runs against Zimbabwe in the 1983 world cup semi-finals.
The India-Zimbabwe match remains to be one of the most memorable matches in Cricket history and also one that was neither broadcasted nor recorded by any channels at that time.
Ranveer Singh underwent an extreme makeover to look as close to Kapil Dev as possible and it can be said for sure that the hard work paid off as the picture looks like Kapil Dev himself and not his reel-life adaption!
’83 traces the iconic win of the Indian cricket team at the 1983 world cup against West Indies as they made history and picked the World Cup for the first time ever.
