Ranveer’s two major films were delayed due to coronavirus pandemic-induced lockdown and shutting down of movie theatres. With the opening up of film theatres in the country, his sports drama titled 83, which chronicles the historical victory of the Indian team in 1983 cricket world cup, has secured a release date near Christmas this year. Directed by Kabir Khan, 83 features Ranveer as Kapil Dev and his actor wife Deepika Padukone as Kapil’s wife Romi Dev.
Meanwhile, Rohit’s cop drama Sooryavanshi, that features Ranveer in a cameo, is likely to release in the first quarter of 2021. Sooryavanshi’ was earlier scheduled to release around Diwali this year. It features Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles.
