Indian cricket team’s 1983 World Cup win in England perhaps never attracted Bollywood enough, but now, filmmaker Kabir Khan is set to launch a project in which actor Arjun Kapoor has emerged as a strong contender to play the role of Kapil Dev.
According to Mid-Day, the film is tentatively titled ‘World Cup 1983’, and will be written by National Award-winning director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan. It’ll be co-produced by Phantom Films and the founder and managing director of the Celebrity Cricket League (CCL), Vishnu Vardhan Induri.
“A mammoth event is being planned to announce the film on September 27. The makers hope that the Indian players who brought the cup home will grace the occasion.”
Apart from Arjun, Ranveer Singh and Hrithik Roshan’s are also rumoured to play Kapil Dev’s role. An official announcement on the same is expected to be made at the event.
