new Delhi: Former captain Kapil Dev, who won India’s first World Cup in 1983, was not initially in favor of making the film ’83’. He said that when he came to know that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh would play the role of his life story on the big screen, he was scared. In the film ’83’, Kapil Dev’s character will be seen playing Ranveer Singh and Romi’s character Deepika Padukone.
Actress and talk show host Neha came to Dhupia’s show ‘No Filter Neha’ as a guest and during this, many questions were asked to her, to which Kapil responded with ease.
Asked what he had to say when his wife Romi came to know about this? To this, Kapil Dev said, “I was a little scared. I thought he is an actor. You are copying some sports and athletics. Is that all he has? But, when I spent time with him, I was surprised how long he has spent on this. Last year in June and July, he spent about eight hours on the cricket field and I was scared. I would like to say that he is not 20 years old and he is not injured. I want to. I was worried about them. I think where artists and actors come together, they know what to do and how to do it. “
Kapil also told how Ranveer made his preparations with him to play his role in this film. He said, “He was with me for seven or eight days. During this time he put a camera in front of me (to record) and asked me how I talk, what I do and how I eat. I think they are fantastic.”
Asked if Ranveer has shot the classic Nataraj, Kapil said, “I think he has worked very hard. I have to see now. I have seen a lot about photographs and other things. These cameraman and These people are good. I was far away from them. We gave our side of the story and nothing else. “
Kapil Dev has revealed that he still does not want to make the film ’83’ as he believes that ‘we are all young now’. He said, “During his life, he makes a film on you and you don’t know how to react to it. I thought we are still very young and say ‘man, what is happening. But when the whole team decided, I was part of that too. My first reaction was, “Can we wait? We are too young and everyone has seen us, let’s not make it.”
