MUMBAI: The entire cast of Ranveer Singh starrer '83' has left for London to kick start their first shooting schedule.
The members playing team blue were spotted outside the Mumbai airport while they were about to leave for London.
The actors stepped out of the bus one by one which created a sense of excitement amongst the viewers as all were waiting to catch a glimpse of the leading man, Ranveer Singh.
The cast was seen screaming and shouting to express their excitement for their first shoot while being captured by the shutter bucks.
Talking about the hard work put in by the entire team during the practice sessions which stretched over for approximately 8 months, Ranveer Singh said:
"My entire team has been practising for 8 months and the prep process was very intensive. Boys have worked very hard to come to this stage and they are finally ready to commence the principal shooting of the film”.
“Today, we are off to the UK for four months for the shooting. I have to say that all the credit goes to Kabir Khan sir and his team as the film is shaping up extremely well. We are very very happy with the way it is shaped up", he added.
"But now it's game time. The real game begins now. We are extremely excited, supercharged, very happy and proud as its an honour and privilege to be a part of such an extraordinary story. And we are hoping to put our best foot forward and create a piece of cinema that we all be proud of”, Ranveer said.
“Former players who have achieved these legendary feet and hopefully that will inspire the new generation and create a remarkable piece of cinema that the entire nation can be proud of," he added.
The film is based on the legendary cricketer Kapil Dev, who lifted the World Cup for India in 1983 and also coached the team from October 1999 to August 2000.
The 'Bajirao Mastani' actor, who is essaying the role of Kapil Dev, has been sweating out to get into the character.
Last month, the actor shared a video, which showed him working out in a gym and practising on a cricket pitch in the picturesque town of Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh. The clip also features the actor training with Kapil Dev.
Apart from the Ranveer Singh, the film also stars R Badree, Hardy Sandhu, Chirag Patil, Saqib Saleem, Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Bhasin, Ammy Virk and Saahil Khattar as the Men in Blue.
Helmed by Kabir Khan, the movie is slated to hit the theatres on April 10, 2020.
