Apparently, the makers of 83, a biopic on legendary Indian cricketer Kapil Dev, have zeroed in on Allu Arjun to play former Team India’s star cricketer Krishnamachari Srikkanth’s role in the movie. The biopic showcases the Men In Blue’s historic World Cup victory in 1983. Srikkanth was a member of the Indian team that clinched the cup.
However, it is still unclear whether Allu Arjun has given his consent to the biopic. It will be a nice gesture by the Stylish Star if he agrees to play a crucial role in his maiden Bollywood flick, which has young heart-throb Ranveer Singh essaying Kapil Dev’s role. Kabir Khan directs 83 and Vishnu Induri co-produces it.
