Jiiva relishes over playing lifetime role

Actor Jiiva has been one among the rarest stars in Tamil cinema to have accomplished the success rate to a greater magnitude in both offbeat and commercial roles. The actor is now relishing over the role of playing the real life character of Krishnamachari Srikanth in the movie ‘83’, which is a retake on 1983 world cup. 

While Kapil Dev’s role would be played by Ranveer Singh and his wife’s role by Deepika Padukone, Jiiva would be seen playing the role of Krishnamachari Srikanth, who was the top scorer in the finals of 1983 world cup. Speaking about this, Jiiva says that Srikanth happens to be the major reason behind getting the game of cricket commercialized and popular towards the gully zones as well. The film will be simultaneously getting released on April 10, 2020 in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu.
