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)

Akshay Kumar And Ranveer Singh Share Screen Space Together For The First time

Akshay Kumar, forget about Deepika bearing with Ranveer for the rest of her life. What about you bearing with this flamboyant flamingo for an hour?

Big relief and huge applause. The second episode of the new season of Koffee With Karan was way superior to the bland and aimless first episode, probably because Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh share a genuine kinship and were not faking it.

Not for a second.

Ranveer was the fanboy. Akshay was the older wiser superstar. Roles taken.

Their shared anecdotes did not preclude the viewers. Both Akshay and Ranveer are people’s persons, not afraid to come across as full-blooded desi Punjabi boyz(with a ‘z’ if you please).

Yes, some portions of the chat did come across as forced. The Rapidfire for example sounded too rehearsed. Some of the answers lacked spontaneity except when Karan Johar, forever in pursuit of a sensational quote, asked Akshay during the rapidfire whom he thought to be “hot” besides his wife.

“I think Deepika is hot,” Akshay asserted while Ranveer nodded approvingly.

The absolute comfort-level between the two actors, such a contrast to the phoney bonhomie between Deepika and Alia last week, won Karan’s two guests hampers full of approval from us.

It is interesting that Ranveer met Akshay for the first time when he was 8. Ranveer, not Akshay.

A word on the wardrobe. Ranveer’s not Akshay’s. He wore what looked like florid curtains stripped and stitched into trousers and vest coats.

Apparently the outfit was a gift to Ranveer from Karan.

With friends like Karan Johar, Ranveer doesn’t need enemies. Akshay for all the masti, behaved and responded with a lot of ‘thehrao’. His answers were not meant to be juicy headlines. They came from the heart.

I remember having a conversation with Akshay some time back on how much effort it takes to come across as a nice person constantly.

“None at all. Because I am not trying,” Akshay replied.

On Sunday night I could see what he meant. The benignity is an integral part of his nature.

When Karan playfully set out to determine who is the better human being between his two guests, I knew the answer immediately.

You deserved the hamper for that. (IANS)
