Former Indian cricketer Kapil Dev turns a year older today. Kapil Dev, who captained the Indian cricket team that won the 1983 Cricket World Cup says that he has his fingers crossed to see how Kabir Khan's '83, based on India's 1983 Cricket World Cup win, has turned out. In the movie, Ranveer Singh portrays the role of the cricketer Kapil Dev. Speaking about Ranveer, Kapil said that he used to worry about Ranveer's health during the shoot. Kapil said to Mid Day that Ranveer is not 18 years of age. 

The birthday boy further said, "I'd see him work so hard on bowling; he'd bowl and play for eight hours constantly to understand the rhythm, and would do so in the peak of summer. In such conditions, even cricketers [avoid training] to prevent injuries. So, I feared for his fitness. Ranveer told me that he wanted to be with me. I don't know what he was trying to [study] — my actions, my manner of talking or pronunciation. [During the 10-day stay] he was dieting because had to lose weight. He was also practising [with me] during that time."
