83: Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev to Tahir Raj Bhasin as Sunil Gavaskar, meet reel-life Kapil’s Devils

The first trailer for 83, the long-awaited sports drama directed by Kabir Khan, was unveiled on Tuesday. The film will tell the story of Kapil Dev-led Team India’s underdog victory at the 1983 cricket World Cup. Ranveer Singh leads an ensemble cast that also includes his real-life wife Deepika Padukone as Kapil’s wife, Romi Dev.  

The three-minute 83 trailer delves into the dressing room tension and public humiliation that Indian cricketers had to deal with at the World Cup, before they took on the formidable West Indies team in the final at Lord’s.
