Actor Ranveer Singh has been training under cricketers Balwinder Singh Sandhu and Kapil Dev for his next film titled ’83. The actor is playing the role of legendary Indian skipper who led the cricket team in the 1983 world cup tournament. For the same, he is learning all the tactics of the game and paying attention to Kapil’s style of cricket. Ranveer is currently learning the famous ‘Natraj shot’ of Kapil Dev and his latest Instagram post is proof of the same.
Ranveer took to Instagram to share a clip of the cricketer performing the Natraj shot. One can see Ranveer standing behind Kapil and observing his leg movement closely to absorb the body language. The post is captioned as, “Workin’ the #NatrajShot 🏏with the Man Himself #KapilDev 👑 @83thefilm #blessed #journeybegins @kabirkhankk”(sic)
Another striking part about the post is Ranveer’s wife, actor Deepika Padukone‘s comment on it. The actor has made a motivating comment on her husband’s post asking him to live this moment as nothing of this will ever come back in his life. Deepika’s comment reads, “make the most of it…these moments will never come back!im soo proud of you!❤️” (sic)
