The cricket analogies are inevitable, considering the Gully Boy is playing a legendary one, none other than Kapil Dev in Kabir Khan’s biopic film, ’83. And this morning, as the country celebrates India’s win against Bangladesh in the T20I series, Ranveer Singh gave us another gift. Across his social media accounts, Ranveer Singh has dropped yet another picture of him as the former World Cup-winning Indian cricket captain. In the first look, Singh as Dev can be seen hitting one.
