Ranveer had spent 10 days at Kapil Dev’s residence in Delhi to understand the finer naunces of his personality. He had received training from the cricketer himself during the boot camp in Dharamshala. Praising the actor Kapil had told in an interview, “His commitment and passion. These two traits in him are what strikes an onlooker at the first go. He will be at something repeatedly and won’t let go till he feels he’s mastered it, despite others telling him it’s acceptable. Just acceptable is not okay. It has to be excellent.”

Being directed by Kabir Khan, the film will tell the story of India’s first cricket World Cup win in 1983. Ranveer’s wife and actor Deepika Padukone will play his onscreen wife Romi Dev in the film.
