Boman Irani to play Farokh Engineer in Ranveer Singh-starrer ’83’
Boman Irani has joined the ensemble cast of filmmaker Kabir Khan’s next “83”, which features Ranveer Singh as Indian cricket legend Kapil Dev. The film will chronicle India’s win under Kapil’s captainship, when the team defeated West Indies in the final to clinch their first-ever World Cup trophy in 1983.
Irani will essay the role of former opening batsman and wicket-keeper, Farokh Engineer, who was one of the commentators at the 1983 World Cup.
The movie also features Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Ammy Virk, Chirag Patil, Jiiva and Harrdy Sandhu.
The movie also features Deepika Padukone as Kapil’s spouse Romi Dev. It marks Deepika and Ranveer’s first on-screen collaboration post their November 2018 wedding.
