Saqib Saleem will be seen playing the role of former India cricketer Mohinder Amarnath in ’83, which was scheduled to hit he screens on April 10. “I always wanted to play cricket in life, and I played state level cricket but I could not become a professional cricketer. I played cricket till I was 20. So, I always had this dream that one day I would play for our country. I was not able to fulfil my dream in real life, but at least I got the chance to accomplish it in reel life,” Saqib had earlier told IANS.
’83 captures the Indian cricket team’s historical win at the 1983 World Cup. It stars Ranveer Singh as legendary cricketer and ex-captain Kapil Dev. Deepika Padukone will be seen essaying the role of his wife, Romi Dev in the film.
