Actor Chirag Patil who plays the role of his real-life father Sandip Patil in the forthcoming 83, says apart from working with Kabir Khan and Ranveer Singh, playing his father on-screen was the real icing on the cake.
Chirag Patil along with his father cricketer Sandip Patil and co-actor Adinath Kothare was interacting with Newshelpline during a press meet.
When asked about working on 83 and his experience, Chirag said, “It was fun, I am feeling proud that I get to be part of this film. I got an opportunity to work with such a big director Kabir Khan, and such a big superstar Ranveer Singh and I got to play my father on silver-screen, it is the icing on the cake. I am happy, excited, and slightly nervous with the release”
Talking about the response the trailer is getting, Chirag said, “People that I haven’t met since last decade or so, they messaged me praising my role and the film. My social media is buzzing with praises”
Further adding, “I don’t think it is a film, I think it’s the story of our nation, India. This is a huge part of our Indian history. Regardless of anything, social strata, religion, or anything else, the cricket world cup in 1983 is close to everyone’s heart,” said Chirag.
The film also stars Deepika Padukone, Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jiiva, Saqib Saleem, Jatin Sarna, Dinker Sharma, Nishant Dahiya, Harrdy Sandhu, Sahil Khattar, Ammy Virk, Adinath Kothare, Dhairya Karwa and R Badree.
