Kabir Khan, the director of the movie ’83’ based on India’s 1983 cricket World Cup triumph, has shared a teaser of the film on social media. In this teaser, we see the iconic backward running catch that Kapil Dev took in the 1983 World Cup final to dismiss the great Vivian Richards.
In the teaser we see Ranveer Singh, who is playing the role of Kapil Dev, running backward at a jampacked Lord’s cricket ground which hosted the 83 final.
That was an iconic catch and the resemblance of the one recreated with the original one is uncanny.
