The Indian Cricket teams victory at the 1983 World Cup in England has been one of the much talked about moments in the sporting history of our country. This was the first ever time that any team apart from the West Indies ever won the world cup. And it was the first time ever, an Indian team won any prominent tournament.
The film which follows this incredible journey of a bunch of players from a low-ranked team, who went on to beat the big stalwarts of the game, is produced by Phantom Films, Vishnu Vardhan Induri of Vibri Media, Reliance Entertainment and Kabir Khan Films.
The Indian team that comprised of Kapil Dev, Mohinder Amarnath, Sunil Gavaskar, Kirti Azad, Yashpal Sharma, Srikkanth, Roger Binny, Balwinder Singh Sandhu, Sandeep Patil, Syed Kirmani, Madan Lal, Ravi Shastri, Dilip Vengsarkar & Sunil Valson, and their manager P R Man Singh contributed towards the finalizing of this story. Most of them were present at the ceremony to show their love and support towards the film.
Ranveer Singh, who is all set to play the role of one of the greatest all-rounders of all time, Kapil Dev, engaged in an interesting tête-à-tête with all of them. Kapil has been a phenomenon that inspired generations of people, as he showcased the true grit and determination of a winner. It will be interesting to see Ranveer, who has delivered landmark performances with each movie, play a sportsman for the first time.
