Kabir Khan reveals the challenges he faced during his research for ’83’
Director Kabir Khan is all set to narrate the story of Indian cricket team’s first World Cup win on the big screen with his film ’83’ and he has already begun prepping for the same. The film, which features Ranveer Singh in the lead, is one of the most highly anticipated films.
In a recent interview with PTI, he was asked about the challenges he has been facing, to which he said, “The most challenging thing about ’83’ is how to stay true to an iconic event that everybody over 40 has seen and remembers, everybody who is a cricket buff knows about it. How to capture the feel and stay true to exactly what happened in the World Cup and yet tell the story engagingly.”
He also said that to gather the information regarding 1983 World Cup, he had to pay a visit to the iconic Lord’s stadium in London. “It’s probably the best story I’ve heard in my life. But there’s a dearth of writing about it. I had to go to Lord’s library and search all the books to finally get all the material together. There’s such less material written on it despite the fact that it was such an iconic moment in the history of our country,” he said.
The film will hit the theatres on 10 April, 2020.
