After releasing the two posters in the past two days, the makers of the upcoming film 83 have unveiled a new poster today.

Saleem can be seen sporting cricket uniform in the poster which has large logo of the film in the background.

The makers took to the Twitter handle of the film to share the poster and wrote, “He’s the devil who drove us to victory. Meet Jimpa, the comeback king, Mohinder Jimmy Amarnath! This Is 83”

Saleem also shared the poster on his official Twitter page and wrote, “Jim paa ki wajah se hi toh hum World Cup 1983 mein itni durr tak pohonch paaye! What an honour and joy it has been to play this legend on the big screen. Presenting the Comeback King, Mohinder Amarnath.”
