Ranveer Singh says that he is now getting under the skin of Kapil Dev to understand how the cricketer faced his struggles to become the legend that he is today. “It should be exciting to get into the skin of such a legendary player. I am really looking forward to it but it is going to be a while before I commence work on it,” he said.
On the upcoming projects he added, “Right now I am committed to the film. I have not officially started work. I am doing two movies before that. First in line is Gully Boy directed by Zoya Akhtar, after that I have Simba directed by Rohit Shetty. At the end of the year I will start prepping for the 1983 movie," he declared.
Ranveer shared a story about his meeting with Arsenal and French legend Thierry Henry, saying the striker’s modesty touched him. “I had a memorable experience meeting my childhood hero Thierry Henry, since I have been watching football I have really admired him. I remember the kindness and grace with which he greeted us. He is an Arsenal legend and a true hero for me. What a warm, down to earth and humble human being he is, what a champion of the sport he is.
