When things come to acting, there is no one who can match his energy and passion. He is a master of that art. He impressed us with his role as Peshwa Bajirao and Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opuses and now, he has once again surprised the audience with his version of Kapil Dev.
Today, Ranveer Singh gifted his fans another famous look for his upcoming film 83 by posting an image in which he imitates the famous Natraj pose of the former Indian skipper.
While posting the image, Ranveer Singh quoted, “NATRAJ SHOT #RanveerAsKapil @therealkapildev @kabirkhankk @deepikapadukone @Shibasishsarkar @madmantena #SajidNadiadwala @vishinduri @RelianceEnt @FuhSePhantom @NGEMovies @vibri_media @ZeeMusicCompany.”

In the image, the actor is seen donning a white jersey with the cricket gear which looks satisfied with his wavy hair and moustache as he recreates the all-rounder’s famous batting pose.
The film will highlight team India’s win under Kapil’s captainship,in the 1983 World Cup where the team defeated the mighty West Indies in the final to clinch its first-ever World Cup trophy.
Ranveer Singh has been training hard to enact the legendary Kapil Dev and his working closely with the former Indian captain to emulate his body language and learn the complexity of his persona in the biopic. The actor even said that, “I’m keen on getting tips on my bowling and batting from the man himself. His achievements are extraordinary. He is the quintessential underdog who became a champion through perseverance, self-belief, hard-work and a positive mindset.”
The uncanny similarity to the cricketing champion has taken social media by storm. Here are some of the reactions.
