Before starting his training for the film in January, Ranveer had said, “I will be going to train to bowl like Kapil Dev. That’s going to be hard. I must tell you the story. I went to Lord’s to watch a Test match and somehow it rained all day and there was not a single ball bowled. In the box, Sachin Tendulkar happened to come. I was really lucky enough to get some time with him. I was telling him that I am doing this movie and I am playing ‘Kapil Dev’. I told him I am going to do all the homework. Moreover, I am going to get a look and accent everything, but I think the most difficult part would be bowling. And he was like, oh, are you going to do the bowling yourself? He also thinks it’s going to be tough.”
Ranveer Singh has also been training with former cricketer Balwinder Singh Sandhu, who had played a significant role in India’s first World Cup win. “Sandhu sir’s validation is of utmost importance. He is happy with my rate of progress. My regimen is a combination of training, skills, and physical conditioning.” he had said in a statement.
Set to hit theatres on April 10, 2020, the film also stars Jiiva as Krishnamachari Srikkanth, Sahil Khattar as Syed Kirmani, Chirag Patil as Sandeep Patil, among others.
