The cast of ’83 is getting bigger and better day by day. We all know that the movie, which is based on India’s first World Cup victory in 1983, has Ranveer Singh playing the role of Kapil Dev. Apart from Ranveer, the makers have roped in many other talented actors to play pivotal roles in the film. The recent addition to the cast is Saqib Saleem. The actor, who was last seen on the big screen in Race 3, will be seen as Mohinder 'Jimmy' Amarnath in the film.
The official Twitter handle of the movie took to Twitter to inform everyone about Saqib playing the role of Amarnath. Fondly known as Jimmy, the former cricketer is one of the finest batsmen against pace. He is remembered for his performance in the 1983 World Cup. Mohinder was awarded Man of the Match in the finals and the semi-finals. We are sure Saqib has to do rigorous training to play this character of the great player.
The Kabir Khan directorial also stars Chirag Patil as Sandeep Patil, Sahil Kahttar as Syed Kirmani, Jiiva as Krishnamachari Srikanth, Ammy Virk as Balwinder Singh Sandhu and Tahir Raj Bhasin as Sunil Gavaskar. ‘83 is slated to release in April 2020.
