Millennials who love cricket can never forget Kapil Dev’s iconic Nataraj Shot, which has crores of dedicated fans. Ranveer Singh, who is now in the shoes of Kapil Dev for the biopic of the legendary cricketer has helped us hit the nostalgia after decades. While the nation is setting the grounds for ’83’ based on the 1983 World Cup winning squad, the unit has released the on-field look of Ranveer as Kapil with the latter’s signature Nataraj Shot. Ranveer left the cinephile and Twitterati in shock with his spitting resemblance with the former captain who brought the World Cup home.
The signature shot from Kapil took the name as the Kapil used to twist his body while lifting his left leg, his stance resembling Lord Nataraja’s striking dance pose. And of course, Ranveer nailed the look and the posture which is now receiving applause from across the country. Kapil Dev himself tweeted the picture with the line ‘Hats off Ranveer!’ Bankrolled by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and directed by Kabir Khan ’83’ has been on the buzz ever since its announcement as the movie also casts Deepika Padukone as Kapil’s wife Romi Bhatia, Tahir Raj Bhasin as Sunil Gavaskar, Saqib Saleem as Mohinder Amarnath, Jiiva as Krishnamachari Srikkanth, and Harrdy Sandhu as Madan Lal among others.
Hats off Ranveer! https://t.co/bAH7pyBtE7
