In the character poster shared by the ‘Padmaavat’ actor, Tahir is seen dressed in a cricket jersey, swinging a bat in an iconic Sunil Gavaskar style.
Earlier this week, Ranveer wished the legend on his birthday by sharing pictures with the all-rounder Kapil Dev from the days of his training days.
In the first picture, Ranveer and Kapil are shown sharing happy moments on the sets of ’83’. While Ranveer is seen dressed as his character, sporting a jersey that reads ‘India 1983,’ Kapil is shown dressed in casuals and is seen resting his hand on Ranveer’s shoulder. In the other picture, Kapil can be seen playing cricket on the field as Ranveer looked at him. Another picture shared by the star also shows director Kabir Khan.
Earlier, the star shared a picture of himself recreating the signature ‘Natraj Shot’ which is Kapil Dev’s iconic shot.
The upcoming sports film based on the former World Cup-winning captain will feature Ranveer essaying role of cricket stalwart Kapil Dev. The movie — ’83’ — also stars Deepika Padukone in the lead role opposite Ranveer Singh. The film also features R Badree, Hardy Sandhu, Chirag Patil, Saqib Saleem, Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Bhasin, Ammy Virk, and Saahil Khattar as the Men in Blue. Helmed by Kabir Khan, the movie is slated to release on April 10.
