With Gully Boy, all set to release on February 14, looks like it is time for Ranveer Singh to plunge headlong into his next project, Kabir Khan’s directorial ’83. He will begin his intense preparation and training for the ’83, under the ace guidance of cricketing great Kapil Dev.

Ranveer, who plays Kapil in the film, will head for Punjab and will train with the legend for three weeks. Ranveer will learn his unique bowling style and absorb as much as he can.

Speaking about it, Ranveer said, “I am looking forward to spending time with Kapil sir. I feel like that time spent would be integral to my process of transforming myself into him. I want to absorb as much as I can from him. His story, his experiences, his thoughts, his feelings, his expressions, and his energy.”

It may be recalled that Kapil galvanized a bunch of cricketers, mostly written off even before the commencement of the World Cup in 1983, to become world beaters.

Elaborating further about training with Kapil, Ranveer said, “I’m keen on getting tips on my bowling and batting from the man himself. His achievements are extraordinary. He is the quintessential underdog who became a champion through perseverance, self-belief, hard work and a positive mindset. I am extremely inspired by him. I want to pour myself fully into this exciting character.”
