The Gujarat, Mysore and Eastern Punjab tours worked well for the film. However, in other markets the film faced stiff competition from the Hindi dubbed version of “Pushpa”. The opening day of ’83’ also caused issues with mass pockets recording low collection. However, ’83’ was doing well in Delhi, but there will be no more nightly shows due to curfew restrictions.
Directed by Kabir Khan, ’83’ tells the story of the iconic victory of the Indian cricket team at the 1983 World Cup. Speaking of the film, Kabir Khan had said exclusively to ETimes: âYou know, 83 is a big responsibility for me. I knew that if I didn’t recreate this correctly, the country wouldn’t forgive me. Ditto for Ranveer: if he doesn’t describe Kapil correctly, the audience won’t forgive him. And as you see in the trailer, he did it brilliantly. He worked very hard. Deepika Padukone, who is co-producing the film, stars as Ranveer’s on-screen woman in this artist. “83” also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jiiva, Saqib Saleem, Jatin Sarna, Chirag Patil, Dinker Sharma, Nishant Dahiya, Harrdy Sandhu, Sahil Khattar, Ammy Virk, Adinath Kothare, Dhairya Karwa and R Badree in key roles.
