Ranveer and Gavaskar were at their entertaining best at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester, England. The duo danced on the famous Mohammed Rafi song Badan Pe Sitare Lapete Hue number in the commentary box during a cricket match between India-Pakistan in the recent past.
Producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala who has come on board to produce ’83 with Anil Dhirubhai Ambani’s Reliance Entertainment and Madhu Mantena said, “All four scripts (Baaghi, Judwaa, Housefull and 83) 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.”
This is Ranveer’s first flick to release in three languages- Hindi, Tamil and Telugu; releasing on April 10, 2020.
