For his film based on In­dia’s Cricket World Cup win in 1983, di­rec­tor Kabir Khan has put to­gether an en­sem­ble cast to form Team In­dia led by Ran­veer Singh who will step into the shoes of Kapil Dev. Af­ter Sahil Khat­tar, Ji­iva, Ammy Virk and Har­rdy Sandhu, the lat­est to join the cast is Pankaj Tri­pathi, who will es­say Man Singh, the man­ager of the 1983 In­dian team. Ran­veer is look­ing for­ward to col­lab­o­rate with the Bareilly Ki Barfi ac­tor.

He says,

“Pankaj Tri­pathi is one of the finest ac­tors in In­dia. He was a part of Gun­day, but he had a brief role. I read some­where that part of the rea­son he is do­ing ’83 is me! That’s a mas­sive thing for him to say. I ad­mire him as an ac­tor. He has done some fine work in New­ton, Gur­gaon and Mirza­pur all of which I have have seen and loved.”

The Pad­maa­vat ac­tor re­cently met Pankaj at an ac­tors’ round ta­ble. He says, “I kept say­ing, ‘Sir I want to work with you’. I man­i­fested it dil se and it has hap­pened. Kapil and Man Singh have a beau­ti­ful track. I think I will learn a lot from him and he will help me grow as an ac­tor.”
