The teaser of Ranveer Singh starrer sports drama 83, as former cricketer Kapil Dev, was shared online. The film is helmed by Kabir Khan.
The clip recreates a nail-biting moment from the 1983 World Cup final at Lord’s, where India defeated West Indies to win their first-ever World Cup.
From the looks of it, the video recreates the wicket of Viv Richards, who was caught out by Kapil Dev with Madan Lal bowling.
Ranveer could be briefly seen in the teaser, about to take the catch. Harrdy Sandhu and Jatin Sarna also featured in the clip.
Sharing the 83 teaser on Instagram Ranveer wrote,
"The greatest Story. The greatest Glory. 83 RELEASING IN CINEMAS ON 24TH DEC, 2021, in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. Teaser out now. Trailer out on 30th Nov. #ThisIs83.”
Deepika Padukone, who plays Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Bhatia in the film, also shared the video on her Instagram page.
Fans, too, expressed their excitement in the comments section. “Yesssss finally baba @therealkapildev,” one wrote. “Can’t wait,” another said.
Earlier, in an interview with PTI, Deepika talked about working with Ranveer in '83.
“It was nice to work with Ranveer in a slightly more realistic setting. Not having to mouth such intense dialogue with that kind of language like we did on three films. It was refreshing. In fact, we had to remind ourselves that ‘this is the same actor that I’ve worked with".
