Chirag Patil To Play His Father, Former Cricketer Sandeep Patil In Ranveer Singh Starrer '83

One of the most astonishing moments in Indian cricket history was its larger-than-life win at the 1983 World Cup. The newly appointed cricket captain then, Kapil Dev, took India towards victory against West Indies, at the Lord's Cricket Ground in London.

Now, Kabir Khan is re-creating India's greatest cricket impact into a movie and we just can't wait for its release in April 2020. 

Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh is gearing up to play Indian skipper Kapil Dev along with Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, who'll play Ghavri. South Indian actor Jiiva will play Srikkanth and Ammy Virk will play Balwinder Singh Sandhu. Along with the chosen actors who'll play the then team members, we have a new casting and we're super excited about it. 

Sandeep Patil's son, Chirag Patil has joined the cast and crew and he'll be playing Sandeep Patil's role, as a middle-order batsman.

Chirag has acted in about 11 Marathi and Hindi films and he definitely can't wait to recreate history, under the captaincy of Ranveer Singh! After all, it's the first time a son is ever playing his father, in a Bollywood movie!

“I'm really excited, the '83 World Cup win is considered a milestone in Indian history and to be a part of that team is a dream come true and playing my father who's my hero is just awesome. I don't think any actor has ever played his father on screen, I'm a first, luckily I landed the part" Chirag told a popular publication.

Although Chriag has never played cricket professionally, but during the practice session for the movie, conducted by Balwinder Sandhu, the lad practiced his father's stance well and played his shots naturally. 

The reel-team has been under training since August and Chirag admitted to the fact that he has also been training under Chandrakant Pandit's Cricket Academy (CPCC), whenever he gets the free time. The boy is trying his best to play exactly like his dad, while following Tendulkar's philosophy of giving it your best shot and leaving the rest to God.

Both father and son share a great camaraderie and Sandeep is thrilled with the idea of his son recreating the World Cup win.

"Every time we would talk about the World Cup victory, Chirag's eyes would light up. From the first match to the finals and the after-party, I've shared so many memories with him,” Sandeep Patil told a popular publication in an interview.

In the World Cup in '83, Sandeep hit one of the final sixes for India to win the match against West Indies, and he dared to play the match with broken ribs! He scored 27 from 29 balls, in India's score of 183, and West Indies were bowled out for 140. What a time to be alive, TBH!

Although Chirag's never seen his dad play, as he retired before Chirag was born, we're sure Sandeep has given him enough life lessons in cricket and otherwise, for him to do a great job in the movie. 

Here's wishing Chirag all the luck for one of the best roles he'll ever play in life.
