While the entire Bollywood world is soaking in all the details from the latest release of Shahid Kapoor's look as Maharawal Ratan Singh in Padmavati, an important announcement has been made about Ranveer Singh! No, this has not got anything to do with his role in Padmavati.
Ranveer Singh has been roped in to play Kapil Dev's role in his biopic- 1983. Earlier today film critic Taran Adarsh took to twitter to announce that Kabir Khan has found Ranveer suitable to play Kapil Dev in his sports based film. 1983, as the name suggests, would be focusing on the Indian cricket team's journey to its World Cup victory in 1983 and its then captain.
This would be the second biopic in Ranveer's career, the first one being Bajirao Mastani directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
