Actor Ranveer Singh’s coach, Rajiv Mehra, on Friday, December 24, dropped a heartfelt note, expressing gratitude after the successful screening of 83. The movie is based on Team India’s 1983 World Cup-winning campaign and Ranveer plays the role of the legendary Kapil Dev, who changed the face of Indian cricket, once and for all, after the glory run.

Earlier reports of Arjun Kapoor portraying the role of the all-rounder did the rounds. However, director Kabir Khan said that he couldn’t look beyond the aura and flair of Ranveer as far playing Dev’s character was concerned. He also lauded the actor for working out of his skin.

In his thankful note, the Ranveer’s coach talked about the hard work Ranveer and the actors put in to live up to people’s expectations. Later, Ranveer also posted the note on his official Instagram handle.

I am just too overwhelmed and grateful to God and everyone who has been a part of this epic. What is has become and what results we are seeing is just an outcome of sheer honesty of the work put in by all. It was like a prayer for you, I remember how much love, sweat you have poured in.

Every batting session, every ball that I bowled to you, every single ball you bowled in practice, every single exercise you did, every single pool session and each and every minute we have spent in pursuit of excellence.

Is it all worth it Ranveer.

I can’t love and thank you enough, I’m just inspired by every inch of who you are.

Apart from Ranveer Singh, the movie also features Ammy Virk, Hardy Sandhu, Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Bhasin among others. Deepika Padukone, who also happens to be Ranveer’s wife, is a part of the film as well. The trailer of 83 released earlier this month and it has garnered a plethora of views.

On Wednesday, the makers organised a screening of the film. Karan Johar, who was present at the screening, lauded Ranveer for playing with precision the role of Kapil Dev.

“I saw myself believing that @ranveersingh had transformed into the Legend Kapil Dev with the ease and genius of a bonafide veteran! He is so so good that’s it’s almost unbelievable at so many points! Restrain and power all at once! He has hit it out of the stadium!” Johar wrote.
