The most energetic actor of Bollywood, Ranveer Singh, is celebrating his birthday today and on this occasion, he has given a perfect gift to his fans. Ranveer has shared his first look as Kapil Dev from his upcoming film ’83. The film is based on India’s first World Cup win in the year 1983.
The character of Kapil Dev is the centric character in the film. At an age of 24, Kapil Dev became the youngest cricketer to lead his country to the World Cup and he still holds that record. Portraying a living character on the silver screen is no joke. However, with Ranveer Singh, we are rest assured that he is going to do justice with his role.
On his birthday, Ranveer Singh shared his first look from the film and we can’t get over with it.
While sharing the picture, he wrote, “On my special day, here’s presenting THE HARYANA HURRICANE .. KAPIL DEV”
Well, his look from the film can’t be just ignored. Just a simple look makes us believe that the film will be promising. Ranveer is receiving birthday wishes and appreciation from everyone on social media. Let’s have a look:

In recent times, films made on sports have proven to be successful at the box office. Films like MS Dhoni, Gold, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Dangal, etc have changed the conventional outlook of Bollywood. Kapil Dev in an interview once said, “The fact that biopics and films are being made on sports stars goes on to show that India is now ready for real films…which is a good sign. Over 20 years ago, India was not ready to make movies on sports.”
While talking about whether Ranveer Singh is a perfect fit to play him on screen, he said, “It was not up to me to decide who will play my character in the film. But he (the actor) has such great energy. I know that he will give more than 100 percent to the film and the entire team will make this film a success.”
Kapil Dev is among the first players in the history of cricket to have taken over 400 wickets and scored over 5,000 runs in Test Matches.
The film ’83 is directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Reliance Entertainment.
