Due to the ongoing the coronavirus pandemic, Ranveer Singh recently announced that ’83’ had been indefinitely postponed.
However, in recent developments, the makers are now looking at 25th June as an option to release the film, reports Box Office Worldwide. This date is even more special as it is the day when India won the World Cup 37 years ago – from which the movie is based on.
A source was quoted as saying, “The health scenario of the nation lies above film and its release, and the makers will announce a date only when there is absolute safety for the viewers to visit the cinema halls. Be assured, it wouldn’t release if there is even 1% scare among the audience, as the idea is to get the entire nation to the cinema hall to revisit the iconic day of Indian cricket.”
The makers have also kept 15th August as an option. “That’s an option for an extreme scenario, but they are optimistic that things would be back to normal by summer end. A wait and watch scenario is being adopted for now, with a team keeping an eye on the on ground scenario,” the source added.
Directed by Kabir Khan, the film is currently at post-production stage and are working towards locking the final edit of the film.
“The theatrical trailer as well as posters are all set to be unveiled. The ones who have seen the promo can’t stop raving about Kabir Khan’s authentic presentation of the game of cricket in the 80’s. Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev steals the show, as expected. It evokes nationalistic feeling and has ample of goose bumps too,” the source concluded.
