One of the most anticipated sports movies in recent times: 83, will hit the theatres on April. And, there are numerous reasons to feel genuinely excited about it. First of all, the event in it is fair to say that the 1983 World Cup was not only a pivotal moment in Indian cricket but also for the country as a whole.
India was only 36-year-old as an Independent nation still coming to terms with everything that they had suffered during the British Raj and the subsequent partition. The sight of Kapil Dev lifting the World Cup at the Mecca of Cricket gave a sense of pride and a bloated self-confidence among the Indians.
And, secondly, the actor who will be playing the role of Kapil Dev: Ranveer Singh. It is fair to say that Ranveer Singh is one of the most hardworking and versatile actors going around. The actor works extremely hard to match his physical appearance according to the demand of the character. From bulking up for his role of Khilji in Padmavat to transforming into all thin and lanky in Gully Boy, the man is a living example of how one should take their work with utmost sincerity.
And, now if the reports are to be believed, the actor has lost another 15 kilograms to fit into Kapil Dev’s character. Earlier in July, Ranveer shared a shirtless picture of himself on Twitter which he captioned it as, “me looking at you eating carbs like.”, clearly indicating that the actor was undergoing rigorous training sessions and strict diets.

During an interaction with the media, Ranveer stated that Kapil Dev’s body mechanics were very unique and only the legendary cricketer could execute that action. Ranveer further admitted that he had to change his body mechanisms which were extremely tough to emulate. In the same interview, Ranveer also revealed how he spent 10 days with Kapil Dev, learning his food batters, batting, and bowling skills plus his work ethics, practicing cricket for three hours daily.
Within a month of Ranveer posting about the “No carb” picture, the actor shared a part of his final look on social media. The much-anticipated Ranveer Singh-starrer ’83 releases on April 10, 2020.
By definition, an ALL-ROUNDER is a person who can do many different things well. I strive towards being an all-rounder in my life. To be a good family man, a good friend, a good actor, a good person. Whatever I do, I want to be good at it. An ALL-ROUNDER. pic.twitter.com/s6MNeBza4j
