Mumbai: Creating waves with his one-liners in the much acclaimed Sacred Games, Jatin Sarna's character Bunty became a household name, now the actor is all set to present yet another memorable role as he steps into the shoes of Yashpal Sharma in the much-anticipated '83.

Directed by Kabir Khan, the sports drama will unfold one of the biggest and most celebrated events in the history of Indian Cricket, as it brings to the screen the World Cup victory of 1983.

Further speaking about the character in '83, Jatin shared, "Now on playing Yashpal Sharma was something I never imagined. I was given Madan Lal's part for an audition but it didn't work out. Though the audition went fantastic and they liked it too. But hardy is playing it now and Yashpal came to me which is eventually more interesting with the fact that most people don't know his story and journey. Actually, India's 83 win journey starts from Yashpal's fantastic knock against West Indies in the very first match which laid the stone of bigger win and the consistency he maintained throughout by playing an important role in all the matches."
