In his three seasons, Tambe played an unforgettable role with the ball. Once his time with the Royals was over, the bowler went on to represent the Gujarat Lions, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Kolkata Knight Riders. In the 33 matches he played in the IPL, Tambe picked up a total of 28 wickets during his seasoned career. Kaun Pravin Tambe? is about the extraordinary journey of cricketer Pravin Tambe, a right-armed leg spinner, who made his biggest cricket league debut by entering the IPL (Indian Premier League) at the age of 41, not having played any international or even first-class cricket before that. A modern-day fable of an underdog who fought against his destiny and triumphed over it.

It is produced by Fox Star Studios, Friday Filmworks and Bootroom Sports Production. This is Shreyas Talpade's second time taking on the role of a cricketer.
