The first teaser of Kabir Khan’s sports drama 83 is out after a long wait of two years. The film, starring Ranveer Singh, chronicles the Indian cricket team’s first World Cup victory under the captaincy of Kapil Dev in 1983, when they defeated West Indies in the final.
In the one-minute black and white teaser, we see actor-singer Hardy Sandhu, who plays Madan Lal, bowling to an actor (playing Vivian Richards). The video ends with a scene of Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, who takes the catch (almost). This catch of Kapil Dev confirmed India’s position in world cricket by dismissing Viv Richards.
Ranveer took to Twitter to share the teaser. The actor also revealed that the trailer of the film will release on November 30. Sharing the teaser, he wrote, ‘Biggest story. greatest glory. 83 is releasing in theaters on December 24, 2021 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. Teaser out now. Trailer out on 30th November.”
83 is now scheduled to release in theaters on December 24. The film will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. The big-budget, multi-starrer film was one of the first projects that got pushed – from its original April 2020 release – due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The makers had announced a new date of June 4, 2021, which was again pushed due to the second wave of the pandemic. It also stars Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jeeva, Saqib Saleem, Pankaj Tripathi and Deepika Padukone. The film is produced by Kabir Khan, Madhu Mantena, Vishnu Induri and presented by Reliance Entertainment.
