Ranveer-Starrer ’83’ Not To Be Released On Digital Platform

Mumbai: Reliance Entertainment on Saturday confirmed that the movie ’83’, starring Ranveer Singh as World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev, will not release on digital platform.

Brushing aside reports that a big OTT platform has offered Rs 143 crore to the makers of the movie, the release of the movie has been indefinitely postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“There is no truth in this. As producers and even the director, we all are on the same page — that we want to wait for next few months for its theatrical release. We will first complete the film, and then we will wait. If six or nine months down the line the situation becomes much worse, we will take a call then. There is no hurry. Everybody has shown interest in this project but we are not engaging in any discussion for a straight to digital release currently,” Reliance Entertainment Group CEO Shibashish Sarkar was quoted as saying by PTI.

Directed by Kabir Khan, the film was initially set to release on April 10, but got delayed due to the global pandemic. Some post-production work of the film is still pending.

Based on the 1983 World Cup, the film also stars Deepika Padukone, Hardy Sandhu, Tahis Bhasin, Jiva, Saqib Saleem, Pankaj Tripathi among others.
