Rajiv reveals that even though Ranveer Singh did some research on the game, he was a total beginner and not only did they have to teach him the sport from scratch, they also had to make sure that he imbibed Kapil Dev perfectly. As for Shahid, he has played gully cricket but is required to play the role of a professional cricketer who could have played for team India.

Speaking further on Shahid’s practice, Rajiv says that they trained at a turf in Mumbai for three hours a day. Since he is playing a fictional character, they worked on making him a good batsman and his cover drives, sweep and hook shots including the big sixes. Hitting close to two hundred strokes a day, they went for about 75% of perfection while giving him leeway to include his own unique style in it.

The film will be seeing a 12-year leap, and they have shot for the older version of Shahid who is 36 years old and will now move on to the younger version of his character.
