Kapil Dev was the captain of the Indian cricket team which had won the first World Cup title in 1983. As soon as the news of Kapil Dev’s health scare surfaced online, fans and well wishers of the legendary cricketer took to social media to wish him a speedy recovery.
Interestingly, a Bollywood film is being made on Kapil Dev’s iconic victory. Ranveer Singh essays the lead role, stepping into Kapil Dev’s shoes for ’83. Directed by Kabir Khan, ’83 was scheduled to hit the screens in April this year but the pandemic has delayed its release. Ranveer Singh reportedly stayed at Kapil Dev’s residence in Delhi, to learn the nuances of his personality. He also underwent training with the former Indian captain at a boot camp.
