After giving back to back hits such as Simmba and Gully Boy, Ranveer Singh is all set to come back to the big screen to entertain us once again with his much-awaited sports drama ‘83. While he played the role of a strong and muscular policeman in action drama Simmba, Ranveer portrayed the character of a lean rapper who lives in the slums of Mumbai in Gully Boy. In ‘83, the actor will be seen playing the role of cricket legend Kapil Dev and to fit perfectly into the character, he worked extremely hard for many months.

A consultant and assistant to former cricketer Balwinder Sandhu, Rajiv Mehra coached the actors of '83. In a recent chat with Mumbai Mirror, he opened up about the same and said, “Everyone was aware about their characters but getting the technique right was our responsibility. We had to train them to become their characters physically.” He went on to share how Ranveer had average batting skills and his bowling left them scratching their heads. However, he worked very hard to fit into the character. Rajiv stated, “Ranveer, with the boys, would be at the ground from 8 am till noon, continuing to practice even after others had left.”

When they began shooting, the actor weighed 86 kgs. “83 demanded him to be around 75 kgs. So, in the second half of the day, he’d train with me at the gym, ending with swimming, for four months,” shared the coach. He also added that Ranveer had discomfort in his knees and to help him cope up, the fitness team made a detailed rehab plan.

Ranveer’s first look for ‘83 was shared on the actor’s birthday. Check it out:
