Since the biopic on legendary cricketer Kapil Dev is announced, a lot has been speculated about who is going to play the lead role. Now it’s confirmed that actor Ranveer Singh is officially on-board in Kabir Khan’s next film,

Kapil Dev is a former Indian cricketer, often considered one of the greatest cricketers of all time. He captained the Indian cricket team which won the 1983 Cricket World Cup. The movie, reportedly, will mainly focus on this chapter of cricketer’s life.

Kabir Khan, who has just completed writing the script, was talking with Mumbai Mirror, he said, “I had no idea then that from that day on cricket in India would change forever. As a filmmaker, the journey to that win, filled with the raw energy and sheer passion of a young Indian team, is probably one of the most exciting stories I have worked on. It’s great to have Ranveer come on board as Kapil Dev, as honestly I could see no one else in the role since I started working on the script.”

CCL founder Vishnu Vardhan Induri, who is jointly producing this movie with Phantom Films, is elated to have both Ranveer and Kabir on board. “With his energy and passion, we feel that Ranveer is a perfect fit to play Kapil Dev, one of the greatest sporting legends India has ever produced,” he exults. Vikramaditya Motwane of Phantom Films supported him saying it’s not easy taking on the mantle of Kapil Dev. “If any actor can do it, it’s Ranveer,” he mentioned.

Ranveer Singh is currently gearing up for the release of  Padmavati.
