Ranveer Singh, who will be seen playing India's legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev in '83', on Sunday shared the poster of the film. The Kabir Khan directorial is set to release on December 24 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.

Sharing the poster, Ranveer quoted Kapil Dev - “Like people says, taste the success once… tongue want more.”
"1983 2 Days To #83Trailer. 83 RELEASING IN CINEMAS ON 24TH DEC, 2021, in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. Also in 3D. #ThisIs83"
The poster was unveiled two days after the team shared the teaser of the film.
While Ranveer plays Dev, '83' features the likes of Pankaj Tripathi as manager PR Man Singh, Saaqib Saleem as Mohinder Amarnath, Ammy Virk as Balwinder Singh Sandhu, Saahil Khattar as Syed Kirmani and Tahir Bhasin as Sunil Gavaskar. Deepika Padukone has been casted as Kapil Dev's wife Romi.
The film chronicles India's win under Kapil Dev's captainship, when the team defeated West Indies in the final to clinch their first-ever World Cup trophy in 1983.
On Friday, Ranveer Singh had shared a 59-second-long clip on social media that recreated the iconic dismissal of West Indies legend Vivian Richards from the match.
The teaser opens with a packed Lord's cricket stadium where the crowd is rooting for the Indian team and then shows Madan Lal bowling to Richards.
After the West Indies batsman played a pull shot, Singh's Kapil Dev runs and takes the catch. Richard's dismissal was one of the pivotal moments that had shifted the match in India's favour.
Kamal Haasan’s Raajkamal Films International and Akkineni Nagarjuna’s Annapurna Studios have joined hands with Reliance Entertainment to present the Tamil and Telugu versions of the film.
