Ranveer looks spitting image of the former skipper, with complete hairdo, moustache, and expressions, and seems to be the flawless fit for the role. '83 is a fictionalised retelling of India's historic victory at the 1983 cricket world cup. India were struggling at 17 for five wickets in the match at one point, and went on to win by 31 runs thanks to Kapil's splendid knock. The social media was flooded with comparisons after the actor shared the picture.
On Monday, Ranveer took to Instagram to share a refreshing picture of himself, wherein he can be seen dressed in a Test cricket uniform, and depicting the popular Natraj shot in the iconic Kapil Dev style.
The shot became iconic during the 1980s after Kapil Dev played it at the Tunbridge Wells stadium in the Cup's semi-finals. Kapil Dev reacted to it and was highly impressed by the '83 star. "Hats off Ranveer!" Kapil Dev wrote while retweeting his photo.
