A few days back, Ranveer Singh took to twitter to announce that next film, the Kapil Dev biopic titled ‘83, has been indefinitely postponed owing to the on-going coronavirus pandemic and the makers will announce a new release date once the things get back to normal. Bollywood Hungama has exclusively learnt that the makers are looking at June 25 as one of the options for the film’s release depending on the global health scenario. “June 25 is a special day as that’s when India lifted the world cup 37 years back by defeating the West-Indies cricket team at Lords. No better occasion to relive the moment than this day. It’s as if destiny wanted the film to arrive on this particular day,” revealed a source close to the development.
However, this just a back-up plan at the moment and things on ground will be reanalysed in May. “The health scenario of the nation lies above film and its release, and the makers will announce a date only when there is absolute safety for the viewers to visit the cinema halls. Be assured, it wouldn’t release if there is even 1% scare among the audience, as the idea is to get the entire nation to the cinema hall to revisit the iconic day of Indian cricket,” the source informed adding further that other options for the makers include August 15 too, which is India’s Independence Day. “That’s an option for an extreme scenario, but they are optimistic that things would be back to normal by summer end. A wait and watch scenario is being adopted for now, with a team keeping an eye on the on ground scenario”
