The makers of ’83 announced another star that has been roped in for the movie and it is none other than Pankaj ‘Kaleen Bhaiyya’ Tripathi. Known for his versatile roles in Gangs Of Wasseypur and Bareilly Ki Barfi, Pankaj has been appreciated in almost all the roles he has played in the movies as well as web series. Reports have been confirmed that Pankaj has been roped in to play PR Man Singh’s role in Kabir Khan’s upcoming biopic. The plot will be based around the first World Cup the Indian Cricket Team ever won in 1983.
With Ranveer Singh portraying the role of Kapil Dev, the team headed for a 15-day long training camp under the supervision of the legend Kapil Dev himself. The cast will also be accompanied by state-level players for a better insight on the game. Speaking of Tripathi’s role, he will be playing the then manager’s role and is thrilled to begin his shoot. The actor expressed his admiration for Kabir’s work and said that the Bajrangi Bhaijaan director happens to be his favourite. He has met the director a couple of times but never had the opportunity to work with him. He also claims that the narration made him tear up when Kabir called him for the role.
