Kapil Dev: Trying to give good stories to Kabir Khan for the Biopic

Mumbai, Oct 24 : Kabir Khan’s most ambitious film “’83” is based on the Indian cricket team’s World Cup victory in 1983. Kapil Dev, who had led the team back then, says he will try to give the filmmaker good stories and information for the movie.

Actor Ranveer Singh will play Kapil Dev on the big screen.

The former star cricketer was here to attend Magic Bus project’s new initiative along with actress Sonam Kapoor.

On the film, Kapil Dev said: “It’s up to the director and producers how they make the film. We will try to give them good stories and give all possible information about that phase.”

Asked who among the current crop of actors from Bollywood fit the casting for the film, he said: “Actors of the Hindi film industry are really good and I feel they shouldn’t be compared with anyone. If you see, in the last 20 to 25 years, we have seen amazing talent in the industry.”

At the event here on Monday, Kapil Dev and Sonam Kapoor interacted with children at an activity-based session at the District Sports Complex Dharavi.

Sonam said there should be more playgrounds for children.

“There are no grounds. I remember I used to study in Arya Vidya Mandir in Juhu, but we used to go to Azad Maidan to play by travelling one hour. So, I hope there will be a lot of grounds for children to play.

“We should give more importance to sports and I am hopeful that things will change slowly and steadily.”(IANS)

With the success of his two projects “Padmaavat” and “Simmba”, Ranveer Singh has delivered Rs 500 crore nett box office in India within a single year. The actor says he wants to stay away from letting this get to his head, and that he is focussed towards becoming the “best entertainer”.

On his success, Ranveer Singh said in a statement to IANS: “I’m uncomfortable in these scenarios, in these discussions, people discuss money and I start scratching my head. I feel I should protect myself now more than ever before from these sorts of things. I find myself receding because I don’t know where this will take me, whether it will colour my thinking because I have been a certain way.

“So far it has worked for me, and I hope to continue as the same kind of artiste and very committed to protecting that integrity that I have towards my art, craft, and I don’t want to start with making choices that I have to do with anything other than honesty, that will be the death of me.”

He knows the number game and what it means.

But Ranveer said: “I also want to stay away this getting into my head. I want to protect the sanctity of my craft and my love for cinema. I have followed a certain ethos that has brought me to this position and I don’t want to change that and don’t want to get into making choices thinking when we do that film, it seems like a Rs 300 cr prospect.

“It is not about the numbers for me, it is basically to entertain people, to entertain as many as i can and as much as possible. I keep that purpose of life, i’m an entertainer and I want to be the best entertainer. It’s a single point agenda for me and a personal ambition,” he added.
