However, it seems that director Kabir Khan is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that his team get maximum exposure to the game before the film goes on floors. A report in a leading daily revealed that the members of the cast will head to London for a 10 day practice session. During their training there, the actors will interact with legendary cricketers like Sir Vivian Richards, Gordon Greenidge, and Desmond Heynes, who were part of the West Indies team that India had defeated in the 1983 finals. During an interview with the leading daily, Ammy Virk revealed, “The cast and crew are flying down to London on May 27. We have a 10- day practice session in the British capital. The makers are trying to get Gordon Greenidge, Michael holding, Viv Richards, Andy Roberts and Desmond Haynes to attend these sessions. [ The idea is to get first- hand accounts] of their techniques and their mindspace during the final match. The makers are also hoping that they will be available for a few days during the shoot.”

Touted as the “biggest sports film” of the country, ’83 is slated to be released on April 10, 2020, in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
