Bollywood’s mitochondria, actor Ranveer Singh, is on a roll despite having his hands full with extensive cricket training for his upcoming movie ’83. Directed by Kabir Khan, Ranveer essays the role of Kapil Dev in the movie revolving around India’s World Cup win in the year 1983. Recently, the actor took a selfie in the gym with bowler Irfan Pathan and former cricketers RP Singh And Nikhil Chopra and fans can’t stop gushing over the robust frame.

Seen donning his signature black bowler hat, Ranveer donned a similar coloured jersey paired with black sunglasses while smiling in a deliberate goofy manner for the camera. Behind him were Irfan, dressed in a blue tee and a pair of white shorts teamed with a black cap, Nikhil Chopra in black tee and a pair of red shorts and RP Singh in grey tee and a pair of red shorts with similar coloured earplugs plugged in as he smiled for the camera along with others. Irfan captioned the post as, “When we met #REEL Kapil paji @ranveersingh #training” (sic).
