Ranveer gives a nod to play Kapil Dev


Ranveer Singh was mulling over the decision to portray Kapil Dev on the silver screen in March, and the actor has finally given a nod. While working on ‘Tubelight’, Kabir Khan had offered Ranveer the film which will immortalize India’s cricket World Cup victory of 1983. The ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ actor has started preparing to play the cricketing legend and will be accompanied by a strong supporting cast. Kabir has completed the script and plans are on to shoot the project early in 2018, at real locations. This project will be Ranveer’s third outing to play real life characters after ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Padmavati’.
