Mumbai: Balvinder Sandhu selected Nishant Dahiya as soon as he bowled the first bowl at '83 selections- he couldn't be more sure! The young actor has been one of the latest inclusions in the star-studded ensemble of the movie.

Nishant Dahiya who was last seen in Kedarnath will be portraying the legendary all-rounder, Roger Binny. The actor will be an integral part of the movie's World Cup winning squad.

With their five-day week practice sessions being whittled down to three days, Dahiya says the cast members are now focusing on understanding the nuances of their individual characters. A recently-concluded bonding session in Dharamshala has enabled them to emerge as a stronger team from an assorted bunch of actors. "We met seniors like Kapil, Mohinder Amarnath, Yashpal Sharma, Madan Lal", shared Nishant in one of the interviews.

"He did it in 15 days. I was so proud of him," Sandhu expressed in praise of Nishant. As far as Dahiya is concerned, he knew the ace cricketer, currently coaching the actors for Kabir Khan's film, was impressed from the word go. "I bowled the first ball, and Ballu sir said, 'Great, you're on board'," he recalls. But, mimicking fast bowler Binny, he realised after hopping aboard the project, was no mean feat.

Tracing the historic victory of 1983 world cup, Kabir Khan's upcoming directorial will star Ranveer Singh as the former captain of the Indian Cricket Team Kapil Dev. The film '83 would be Ranveer Singh's first trilingual film to be made in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

Touted as the "biggest sports film" of the country, '83 is slated to be released on 10 April, 2020 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. It marks the first-ever trilingual release for both, Ranveer Singh and director Kabir Khan.
