Filmmaker Kabir Khan is gearing up for the theatrical release of his much-awaited film 83. The film which narrates the story of the historic win of the Indian cricket team at the 1983 world cup has Ranveer Singh play the role of former captain Kapil Dev. Deepika Padukone, who is the co-producer of the film, plays the role of Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev in the film. The trailer of the film which was released a couple of weeks back had received an overwhelming response.
During a recent interaction with Bollywood Hungama, Kabir Khan was reacting to fan comments on the trailer of 83. One of the comments read, “I’m not even Indian and this trailer made me cry. I’m ready to cry again while watching the movie.”
Reacting to it, Kabir said, “I’m pretty confident that we will make you cry again. I don’t want to say this because the trailer is very good, it has worked but I felt personally and that’s something I told Ranveer that ‘I don’t think we’ll ever be able to capture this film in a trailer. So let’s just put our best foot forward and see what happens’. And we were both overwhelmed by the response that came, but I feel the trailer is not even 5 percent of the film”.
Meanwhile, apart from Ranveer Singh, 83 also stars Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jiiva, Saqib Saleem, Jatin Sarna, Chirag Patil, Dinker Sharma, Nishant Dahiya, Harrdy Sandhu, Sahil Khattar, Ammy Virk, Addinath Kothare, Dhairya Karwa, R Badree, and Pankaj Tripathi. The film will be released in theatres on December 24.
