A few days ago, Ranveer shared the legendary photo of Kapil Dev holding aloft the Prudential World Cup 1983 after winning it on Instagram. The caption read, 36 years ago on this day, India turned the world upside down! Pankaj Tripathi said Ranveer Singh and team are not hugging him in the victory celebrations on reel as they feared it would hurt him. The star cast of 83 is in full enthusiasm for the film as we can see in this picture. Deepika has also joined Ranveer in the film and Ranveer had posted an Instagram with her and another with Deepika and director Kabir Khan.
