Kabir Khan is stepping into a new genre all together for his next! Yes, as per the reports the filmmaker is venturing into movies based on sports and hence we hear that Ranveer Singh has been finalized to play ace cricketer Kapil Dev in Kabir Khan’s next directorial venture.

The film will reportedly be backed by Phantom films, co-owned by filmmakers Anurag Kashyap, Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena.

The story will revolve around India’s win against West Indies during the finals in 1983 World Cup, and how our nation lifted the first cricket world cup trophy ever under Kapil Dev’s captaincy! Now, this must be great news for all the cricket fans out there, isn’t it?
