The release of Kabir Khan's '83 is only a few months away, and fans of Ranveer Singh, who is playing Kapil Dev in the biopic, cannot possibly keep calm. The film features an ensemble cast playing the entire team that represented India in the 1983 Cricket World Cup. The makers on Saturday revealed how the legendary Sunil Gavaskar would look like in the film -- Tahir Raj Bhasin's look.
Introducing Tahir as the first of Kapil Dev’s devils, the makers wrote, “Our favorite Sunny, the Little Master wielding his legendary bat and making his way to win India’s first ever World Cup trophy! Presenting to you Kapil Dev’s first devil — #SunilGavaskar!” Director Kabir Khan also shared the poster and said, “Entering the World Cup, he was the only man the West Indies pacers feared.”

Tahir Raj Bhasin underwent training to ace his skills as a cricketer under coach Rajiv Mehra.
“When I started my cricket coaching, I realized that the way I hold the cricket bat was not textbook form. Like most kids growing up, I have only played gully cricket recreationally. So, I quickly realised how daunting the task will be to actually play the game and become the great Sunil Gavaskar," Tahir had earlier said.
