Ranveer Singh next might be a Kabir Khan film. And guess what like Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranveer too might play a cricketer. Ranveer Singh is all set to work with Salman Khan’s Tubelight director Kabir Khan. Remember not so long ago there was buzz about Kabir helming a project on the lines of Azhar and MS Dhoni- The Untold Story? Well, this film produced by Phantom Productions is based on India’s cricket World Cup victory in 1983. This was the golden team under the guidance of Kapil Dev that went on to lift the first ever World Cup trophy for the country.

“Ranveer has been approached for Kabir’s cricket film and if all goes well after completing Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati the actor might start working on this project,” said a source. If buzz is to be believed then before Ranveer, his buddy Arjun Kapoor was approached for the role. However, seems like Ranveer has now replaced Arjun and will be collaborating with Kabir Khan. The film we hear will be a biopic of sort that will showcase the situation of India in the 80s and focus on the struggles of the then cricket team.
