Renowned trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on 5 July about the probable overlap of the two films' release, calling it an "interesting clash".

Ranveer had earlier told Indo-Asian News Service, "'83 is an incredible underdog story. It's an honour to be a part of one of the most incredible sporting stories of our nations history, the 1983 Cricket World Cup. We have the honour of telling this story and mortalising this on celluloid."

'83 follows how, under newly-appointed captain Kapil Dev, the Indian cricket team defeated West Indies in the final of the World Cup in 1983. It tracks the coming-of-age of not just a cricketing team, but of a young nation in the eyes of the world.
