Kabir Khan also narrated those special moments that he can’t forget. He disclosed how he relished the victory of Indian team in the year 1983.

He said “As a young boy, I was watching the match but at that time didn’t bother to relate it with the implications of this emphatic win. Also, I could not realize how the game of cricket was going to completely change afterwards. It was the day in 1983 when all those young players were paid almost 16 pounds a day (as their daily allowance) in London. But now, the game has completely changed as you can see that today 16,000 crore are being paid only for television rights. That’s exactly what these people actually did.”

Well, the event today looked special as all the original team members of 1983 world cup team were present. All of them chose to share an anecdote from that day.

But when Kabir Khan narrated me the entire story and also that he is making a Kapil Dev biopic on 1983, I felt exhilerated and thought to be a moment of great sports story is being portrayed onto the screens.”
