Kabir Khan’s ’83 team is being introduced to us one day at a time. The sixth character poster of the Ranveer Singh-starrer is now out. Actor Dinker Sharma is all set to play Kirti Azad, who was a right-handed batsman and an off-spinner in the Indian team that won the 1983 Cricket World Cup. Earlier, the makers revealed Saqib Saleem as Mohinder Amarnath, Jatin Sarna as Yashpal Sarna, Chirag Patil as Sandeep Patil, Tahir Raj Bhasin as Sunil Gavaskar and Jiiva as K Srikkanth.
Ranveer Singh took to Instagram and introduced Dinker Sharma as Kirti Azad and wrote, "sabse shararti."
