Poetic justice, if we may call it but Kapil Dev and his men quite deservingly have got paid a hefty sum for giving the nod of making a movie out of their World Cup-winning campaign. The captain of the team, Kapil Dev has reportedly been paid ₹5 crore for the movie with the rest of the team getting ₹10 crore for the film.

While the Indian team received ₹2100 for the final in 1983, it has been learnt that for the rest of the matches the team only received ₹1500 as match fees and ₹600 as daily allowance. It was only after legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar arranged a concert for the World Cup-winning team, that the players got some kind of financial benefit for becoming the Champions of the World.

The duration of the movie is 2 hours and 32 minutes and it has all the making to be an absolute blockbuster. The lead character in the film is being played by Ranveer Singh who will be playing the role of Kapil Dev on screen.
