The teaser from Kabir Khan 83 are out after a long wait, but a few seconds of an edge-of-the-seat fight is all we get to see at the moment. The teaser shows the World Cup winning ball where Madan Lal bowled to Vivian Richards and Kapil Dev took the catch. This moment cemented India’s position in world cricket, which the country still values.
The trailer for the long-awaited Ranveer Singh star is set to be released on November 30th.
In an earlier interview with the Mumbai Mirror, Kabir Khan had shared about shooting at Lord’s Stadium, saying: “We shot for five days at Lord’s Stadium in London, where we went into the Long Room, which were only members where no camera had dared “rooms and changing rooms then appeared on the balcony where the World Cup was presented to Kapil sir. And guess what? They also brought the real World Cup for Ranveer. Overwhelmed, he collapsed when I shouted ‘Klip’.”
83, which describes the journey of the Indian cricket team when they won their first World Cup in England, was originally scheduled for a release in April 2020, but was postponed due to Covid-19. There was some speculation surrounding the film’s OTT release, but the creators persisted in releasing the sports drama on a streaming platform.
83 is led by Ranveer Singh, who plays the role of Indian captain Kapil Dev. The film stars Saqib Saleem, Harrdy Sandhu, Ammy Virk, Pankaj Tripathi, Jatin Sarna, Sahil Khattar, Jiiva and Deepika Padukone, among others.
83 releases in theaters on December 24th.
