Following the coronavirus pandemic Ranveer Singh recently announced that his film titled ‘83 has been indefinitely postponed.
Now according to the information the Kapil Dev biopic has a new release date. The makers are keeping 25 June as an option to release the film since it is a special day. This is the day when India won the world cup 37 years back by defeating the West-Indies cricket team at Lords. However, the film release depends on the global health scenario.
Although it’s just a plan B as of now things will get reanalysed in May.
“The health scenario of the nation lies above film and its release, and the makers will announce a date only when there is absolute safety for the viewers to visit the cinema halls. Be assured, it wouldn’t release if there is even 1% scare among the audience, as the idea is to get the entire nation to the cinema hall to revisit the iconic day of Indian cricket,” a daily quoted a source as saying.
The makers have also kept August 15 as an option. “That’s an option for an extreme scenario, but they are optimistic that things would be back to normal by summer end. A wait and watch scenario is being adopted for now, with a team keeping an eye on the on ground scenario,” source added.
Directed by Kabir Khan the film is currently under the post-production stage and the makers at present are working towards locking the final edit of the film.
“The theatrical trailer as well as posters are all set to be unveiled. The ones who have seen the promo can’t stop raving about Kabir Khan’s authentic presentation of the game of cricket in the 80’s. Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev steals the show, as expected. It evokes nationalistic feeling and has ample of goose bumps too,” the source promised.
