Actor Jiiva is making his debut in Bollywood through ’83’, which is gearing up for release shortly. The film directed by Kabir Khan is based on the real life incidents of Indian Cricket Team during 83 world cup. While Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the role of Kapil Dev, Jiiva would be essaying the role of Krishnamachari Srikanth.
It is worth mentioning that Jiiva is a fabulous cricketer in real life and he played some shots that actually made the Veteran cricketers like Sunil Gavaskar enthralled. However, Ranveer Singh playing the role of Kapil Dev had to struggle a lot. Especially to give a perfect ‘Nataraja Shot’ in the signature style of Kapil Dev, he had to go for 85 takes.
