It wouldn't be saying much if we tell you that Ranveer Singh has had one of the best years of his career so far in 2018. Actually, you know what, we just did. But anyhow, while last year was good, and we have a feeling that this year might just turn out to be better, but it is actually the next year which is screaming 'best' because Ranveer is set to star in his first ever biopic '83', which will release in 2020.
Based on the life of India's legendary cricketer Kapil Dev, '83' has been garnering a lot of momentum lately ever since it finally received its date of release. From a stellar supporting cast to finally zeroing in on who would play coach to Ranveer Singh's Kapil Dev in the film, it seems like Kabir Khan directorial project is finally set to hit the floors after much delay.
So if the latest reports are to be believed, Pankaj Tripathi shall be seen training Ranveer Singh, who will be portraying Kapil Dev in the film. It has also been reported that Nawazuddin was approached for the role initially, but he declined the offer due to prior commitments.
However, all we can say is that we are thrilled by this change of events because we feel this pairing is an absolute show stealer and the duo would set the screen on fire with their terrific acting skills and the freshness they bring to each of their characters.
Even when Ranveer and Pankaj recently met each other during a shoot, the pair couldn't stop praising each other's work. Later, Ranveer also shared his desire to work with Pankaj and suggested that a possibility might be in the works.View this post on Instagram

More recently, the makers also announced that Punjabi singer-actor Ammy Virk is set to play Balwinder Singh Sandhu in the film, while another Bollywood Hungama report shared that, Sunny Kaushal, Harrdy Sandhu and Tahir Raj Bhasin have also been roped in for the film.
With the film set to release on 10th April 2020, anticipation around the film is definitely running high amongst movie-goers and cricket fans alike.
