Ranveer Singh starrer '83 has created noise for all the right reasons and after an intense training session in Dharmashala, the squad will kick off the film's shooting in London soon. The makers of the film have slowly and steadily introduced each member of the squad and continue to do so on social media. Now, a latest report suggests that the son of the late West Indies fast bowler Malcolm Marshall, Mali will be playing him on-screen.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, director Kabir Khan wants to keep the film as realistic as possible. A source revealed to the tabloid, “Mali is a fast bowler and a middle order batsman like his father and suited the part perfectly.” Kabir is also in talks with sons of other famous West Indian players to make sure the film's look and feel is a 100 per cent authentic.  

This is not a first, a while ago the team had roped in former cricketer Sandeep Patil's son Chirag Patil to play his part. Not just the Indian squad, but the casting team has undertaken an ambitious job of even finding the right players for the England team who played India in the 1983 world cup semifinals. 

 

 

Ranveer Singh and the entire squad were training in Dharmashala under the real players of ‘83 team like Kapil Dev, Mohinder Amarnath and Yashpal Sharma. The training sessions are being helmed by coach Balvinder Singh Sandhu. ’83 marks the journey of Indian Cricket Team’s victory against West Indies in the World Cup of 1983.
