Speculation is rife that Tollywood’s most-loved star Vijay Deverakonda said no to his Bollywood debut titled “83”, that stars Ranveer Singh in the lead role.
The film is a biopic on India’s ace cricketer Kapil Dev under the direction of Kabir Khan. It features Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev and recreates the events leading up to India’s victory in the Cricket World Cup in 1983.
Reports said that Vijay Deverakonda was offered the role of Krishnamachari Srikanth but he rejected the offer.
Reports added, “Right now he’s very busy with his commitments in Telugu. Vijay is of course looking forward to a Hindi film debut. But not in a film that already stars Ranveer Singh. No prizes for guessing who would have the most important role in the film.”
