If reports are to be believed, the much awaited sports flick ’83’ is all set to hit the silver screens in June 2021. The sports drama that features Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev is based on India’s dream run in the 1983 cricket world cup.
“Reliance (Entertainment) along with the many other producers of the film have decided to release the sports flick in the month of June. It makes sense as the normalcy would have kicked in firmly by then. Also, getting it in theatres before in April is not feasible as Sooryavanshi is releasing on April 2. Also, the holy month of Ramzan is expected to commence from Monday, April 12. So, April is completely ruled out. The month of May will see the release of two big films – Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai and Satyameva Jayate 2. Both the movies are expected to release during Eid, on or around May 14. A few films might also release in cinemas in the last two weeks of May. Hence, June seems like a good period,” a source close to the development tells a publication.
Quashing the rumours that suggested that Kabir Khan might look to slot the movie on 25th June, the day when India won the 1983 world cup, the source revealed that the makers are eyeing the full month of June and no such date has been finalised yet. Along with Ranveer Singh, the movie also features Deepika Padukone, Tahir Bhasin, Ammy Virk, Saqib Saleem, Hardy Sandhu, Sahil Khattar, Pankaj Tripathi and Boman Irani.
