After some stoppages due to the pandemic, Kabir Khan's film 83, starring Ranveer Singh as playing cricketer role, will hit the theatres on June 4. The actor took to social media to form the announcement.
He is tagging the whole team of the movie and wrote, "June 4, 2021!!!! in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. See you in the cinemas!!! #ThisIs83,"
83 reveals how the Indian cricket team defeated West Indies to secure their 1983 maiden World Cup. The film also stars Deepika Padukone, Pankaj Tripathi, Boman Irani, Saqib Saleem, Harrdy Sandhu, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jatin Sarna et al..
Earlier, it had been rumoured that 83 might head straight for an OTT release. Kabir had confirmed that streaming platforms offered the makers huge sums to release the film directly online. However, he had maintained that it'll begin only in theatres.
He had said, "83 maybe a picture that has been envisioned and produced to be experienced in the cinema and that we can expect things to make normal then release it in cinemas".
Ranveer told PTI in 2018 that he was stoked to play Kapil, whom he called 'a legend in the most real sense', on-screen. "I always desired to be a part of a film where the deduct would be that sense of national pride. The story of underdogs' triumph is lost. there's an entire generation that must know and that I am happy to be fronting it," he added.
Ranveer admitted that before he signed 83, he didn't skills the Indian cricket team achieved the spectacular win at the 1983 World Cup. "how we gained our World Cup, I had no idea. They were an entire bunch of underdogs that no-one believed in and that they fought and had the last word victory. it's a person's story," he said.
