Speaking about the same, he reportedly said that he is looking forward to spending time with Kapil sir. He feels that would be integral to his process of transforming himself into him. He also added that he wants to absorb as much as he can from him — his story, experiences, thoughts, feelings, expressions, and energy.

The actor also reportedly stated that he is also looking forward to get some cricketing tips from Kapil. According to Ranveer his achievements are extraordinary. He is the quintessential underdog who became a champion through perseverance, self-belief, hard work and a positive mindset. The actor says he is extremely inspired by him and wants to pour himself fully into this exciting character.

Ranveer will reportedly be shooting at the iconic Lords cricket stadium in England in order to recreate India’s 1983 World Cup-winning moment, where Kapil Dev won the World Cup as captain of Team India.
