Snapped at the Lord’s cricket ground in England, Ranveer was pictured with director Kabir Khan and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. The three of them are in London to watch the Test Match between India and England.
Ranveer is currently studying for his film titled 83 that will bring to Indians, one of their biggest moment of pride on the screen -- India's iconic Cricket World Cup win in the year 1983 in which Kapil Dev who was the captain of the team played an instrumental role.
Sachin was 9 years old when he saw on television Kapil’s Devils win the World Cup in 1983 right here at this ground. That win inspired him to want to play for India. 35 years later we kick off the prep for our film 83 at the Lords...
