‘83: Producer Sajid Nadiadwala Backs Ranveer Singh Starrer
Producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala has come on board to back Kabir Khan’s sports drama, ’83, along with Madhu Mantena and Anil Dhirubhai Ambani’s Reliance Entertainment. Sajid and Madhu will also co-produce three more films over a period of three years.

’83 revolves around India’s first victory in cricket World Cup (in 1983), and features Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, India’s captain. The film, which will be made in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, is also Ranveer’s first trilingual project.

The movie has been creating a lot of buzz ever since it was announced, and now, with Sajid turning co-producer, the team is optimistic that he will further broaden its horizons. Sajidis counted among the most successful producers in Bollywood, with his banner having close to 65 years of experience in the Indian entertainment business. The producer, who is known for impressive production values, owns some of B-Town’s popular franchises, including Housefull, Baaghi and Judwaa.

Sajid says, “All four scripts are excellent. As a producer, one has to commit to the content more than anything else. Coming on board for ’83 is a feeling of personal joy, as I saw that glorious moment on live television. There are certain projects that develop an aura around them and ’83 is one of them.”

Madhu shared, “Sajid is one of the most valuable anchors a film can get. He has an astute understanding of content and business and is completely hands-on as a producer. We will immensely benefit from this partnership.”

We had reported recently that Pritam will be composing the music for this film. Also, the director has been picking up the sons of other players to portray their fathers on-screen. While Chirag Patil has stepped into the shoes of his father to play Sandeep Patil,  Mali has been entrusted with a similar job when it comes to represent his late father Malcolm Marshall.

Ranveer Singh and his team kickstarted prep work for the film in Dharamshala. We even shared videos of them partying and singing songs during their break-time. For those who've come in late, Kapil Dev has been coaching the actor to get the nuances bang on.
