As cricket is considered no less than a religion in India, people are all geared up to welcome the screening of 83 in the cinema halls on 24 December 2021. This Ranveer Singh starrer movie is based on the exemplary life of cricket legend Kapil Dev and India’s remarkable victory in Cricket World Cup 1983.
Apart from witnessing the historical triumph of the Indian Cricket Team on the big screen, people of Delhi will also enjoy a special privilege of watching the movie without paying any taxes! Thanks to Delhi’s chief minister Arvind Kejriwal who made an official announcement about waiving off the taxes for the Delhi based movie buffs!
Other than the Delhiites, director Kabir Khan too welcomed the idea and took to social media to share the news with his followers. Thanking Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, Kabir expressed that by declaring a tax-free status for this movie, the tale of India’s greatest victory will be able to reach out to a larger audience.
If rumours are to be believed, the movie might go tax-free in some other states too. Other than Ranveer Singh playing the lead role, actors Deepika Padukone, Ammy Virk, Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Addinath Kothare, Chirag Patil, Harrdy Sandhu and Boman Irani would be seen playing supportive yet crucial roles in the movie.
During one of the interviews with a leading news agency, Ranveer Singh confessed to the challenges he had to face while diving into the character of the legendary cricketer. He added that in order to adapt to Kapil Dev’s exclusive bowling style and bio-mechanics, he had to undergo a complete physical transformation.
Other than Hindi language, the movie can also be seen in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayam.
