Neena Gupta has of late become Bollywood’s favourite maa and now she will be seen playing mother to Ranveer Singh in Kabir Khan’s upcoming movie ’83.
Ranveer is playing Kapil Dev in the sports drama and Neena Gupta is playing the role of the legendary cricketer’s mother in the film. Neena has a small and sweet role and she finished her portions in just one day. She met Kapil Dev’s family to prep for her role and to understand the dynamics between his mother and his family. She learnt that she was a strong-willed woman with an indomitable spirit.
’83 traces the journey of team India’s victory at the 1983 World Cup under Kapil Dev’s leadership. The sports drama also stars Deepika Padukone, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Ammy Virk, Harrdy Sandhu, Pankaj Tripathi, Jiiva, Boman Irani and Sahil Khattar among others. The film is slated to release on April 10, 2020.
