Ranveer Singh is on a high. Not only have his past couple of films hit bull’s eye, his upcoming projects too routinely make news. In the recent times, if we have heard about his films, Gully Boy and Simmba, then there’s more. The actor is fast getting into the Kabir Khan’s film based on India’s win over West Indies in the 1983 cricket World Cup in London. Don’t believe us? Check out his recent pictures.
On Thursday, the actor shared pictures of himself in the company of director Kabir Khan and cricketing legend, Sachin Tendulkar posing at the Lord’s Cricket Ground. Ranveer reposted the picture shared by Kabir, which said, “Sachin was 9 years old when he saw on television Kapil’s Devils win the World Cup in 1983 right here at this ground. That win inspired him to want to play for India. 35 years later we kick off the prep for our film 83 at the Lords… Can’t get better than this can it? @ranveersingh @sachintendulkar#indiaenglandseries #lords #filmprep.”
Sporting a red blazer, Ranveer looks every bit a dashing dude he is. The film, 83, revolves around India’s unexpected World Cup win and how Kapil was one of its main architects. When the project was announced, many members of the said team were invited.
While others went back in time to recall those days, Krishnamachari Srikkanth, the swashbuckling batsman, was his candid best and shared with the audience how it was Kapil who instilled in the team the belief and will to win the World Cup. For Kabir too this project should be important, as his ambitious last film, Salman Khan-starrer Tubelight, proved to be dud at the box office. Meanwhile, Ranveer is at a career high after Padmaavat.
On Thursday too came the big news that he would play the lead role in Karan Johar’s directorial, Takht, which also boasts of a galaxy of other big names like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Alia Bhatt. Other promising stars like Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and latest star kid in the firmament, Janhvi Kapoor too will feature in what is said to be an epic tale of love, war, betrayal, family and power, set in the Mughal era.
Meanwhile, Ranveer is also constantly in news over his rumoured wedding to Deepika Padukone, which is allegedly scheduled for the last part of 2018. As per reports, the duo might tie the knot is faraway Italy, at the lake town of Como, where many a Hollywood A-lister has a home.
