New Delhi: Bollywood's quirkiest Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the titular role of cricketing legend Kapil Dev in the film titled 1983--the year India lifted the historic World Cup. The film will be directed by Kabir Khan and will present the journey of India's victory.
Now, the latest rumour doing the rounds is that ace actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be cast in a pivotal role. According to Mumbai Mirror, Nawaz has been offered to play the part of team India's coach who helped the boys win the coveted cup.
The casting of the film is still underway. Nothing has been revealed about who is playing what in the sports drama as of now.
