Acclaimed actor Tahir Raj Bhasin, who plays the legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar in Kabir Khan’s 83, is eager to get the master batsman’s feedback on his performance. On Sunil’s 72nd birthday, Tahir says it was an honour to essay the sensational batting wizard for the big screen.
Tahir says, “I can’t wait for Sunil Gavaskar to see 83 and watch my performance in the film. It’s a huge honour to play a legend like him on screen and I hope I have done enough. I’m excited as well as nervous because I want to see his reaction while being next to him.”
He adds, “Sunil Gavaskar is not just an icon, he is an institution and my on-screen act is a huge salute to everything that he has done for our country and Indian cricket.”
83 is directed by Kabir Khan and stars Ranveer Singh headlining the movie in the role of Kapil Dev. The movie is based on India’s 1983 World Cup win.
