Ranveer Singh's 83 postponed; Here's the new release date
Ranveer Singh announced on Instagram that '83, his film based on India's unlikely triumph at the 1983 World Cup, will be delayed
Last evening, Ranveer Singh announced on Instagram that '83, his film based on India's unlikely triumph at the 1983 World Cup, will be delayed as he is busy with Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy. Kabir Khan's directorial venture, in which Ranveer plays Kapil Dev, will now hit the screens on August 30, 2019.
The film follows how, under the captaincy of then newbie Kapil Dev, the Indian cricket team defeated West Indies. It tracks the coming-of-age of not just a cricketing team, but of a young nation in the eyes of the world. Earlier, the makers were planning an April 2019 release for the film.
The film is being made by Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Films in association with Vibri Media and Kabir Khan Films.
