The long wait is over. Indian filmmaker, Kabir Khan’s 83 movie will be coming to digital platforms after an eight-week run at the box office. The public and critics both appreciated the movie.
83 cast the ever-popular, and energetic Ranveer Singh in the lead as Kapil Dev. The 36-year-old is one of the most sought-after actors in India with proven acting skills in notable projects like Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat. His previous movie, Sooryavanshi, alongside Akshay Kumar, was a record-breaker at the Indian box office. In his second outing of the year, Singh will be seen beside global actress, Deepika Padukone (xXx: Return of Xander Cage).
83 movie is based on one of the significant events in Indian history and Indian cricket. Kapil Dev, the Indian cricket team’s captain, played a key role at the 1983 World Cup match when the team lifted the World Cup. The team played against formidable opponents like England, Australia, West Indies, and Zimbabwe to win the World Cup.

Netflix owns the Hindi rights of the film, so it will be streaming the original Hindi version. Disney + Hotstar will stream the Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam versions of the movie. Dubs are in different languages, but all Indian movies come with English subs, 83 will be no different.
Kabir Khan’s Films Production co-produced the 83 movie with Ranveer’s better half, Deepika, Kabir Khan, Vishnu Vardhan, Sajid Nadiadwala, Sheetal Vinod Talwar, Reliance Entertainment, and 83 Film Ltd.
