Earlier, the makers had shared seven character posters which featured Nishant Dahiya, Chirag Patil, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jiiva, Saqib Saleem, Jatin Sarna, Harrdy Sandhu, Ammy Virk, and Dinker Sharma.
Singh will step into the shoes of former Indian skipper Kapil Dev. Dahiya will be seen essaying the role of Roger Binny while Sharma will be seen as Kirti Azad. Patil will be seen enacting the role of his father and former Indian cricketer Sandeep Patil. Bhasin will be playing Sunil Gavaskar. Jiiva will be seen as the top scorer in the final match of the 1983 world cup against West Indies, K Srikkanth. Saleem will play Mohinder Amarnath, Sandhu is Madan Lal, Virk is Balvinder Singh Sandhu, and Sarna will portray Yashpal Sharma.
The actors had trained in Dharamshala for the film with India's former cricketers and renowned coaches earlier in 2019. The team of 83 has also recreated Dev’s match-winning innings of 175 runs against Zimbabwe at Tunbridge stadium.
Deepika Padukone, whose new release was Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak, will play Dev's wife Romi Bhatia. The sports drama will reunite Padukone and Singh onscreen after Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 2018 directorial Padmaavat.
Produced by Madhu Mantena, Vishnu Induri and Khan, and presented by Reliance Entertainment, 83 is slated to release on 10 April.
