Indian film and theatre artist Jatin Sarna has been roped in to play the role of former Indian cricketer Yashpal Sharma, in Kabir Khan’s upcoming sports-based film ’83. The actor is famously known for portraying the character ‘Bunty’ in the hit Netflix India series titled ‘Sacred Games‘.

Yashpal Sharma was a middle-order batsman in the 1983 cricket team and with the top score of 89 runs facing West Indies in the opening match set the foundation of India’s winning streak at the World Cup.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the news and wrote, “#SacredGames actor Jatin Sarna to essay the role of #YashpalSharma in #83TheFilm… Stars Ranveer Singh as #KapilDev… Directed by Kabir Khan… Presented by Reliance Entertainment… Produced by Madhu Mantena, Vishnu Induri, Kabir Khan… #CastOf83 #Relive83”

Jatin says, “Playing Yashpal Sharma was something I never imagined. I was given Madan Lal’s part for an audition but it didn’t work out. Though the audition went fantastic and they liked it too. But Harrdy is playing it now and Yashpal came to me which is eventually more interesting with the fact that most people don’t know his story and journey. Actually, India’s 83 win journey starts from Yashpal’s fantastic knock against West Indies in the very first match which laid the foundation for a bigger win.”

He further adds, “I am glad to have landed the opportunity to work with Kabir Khan, that too on such a larger-than-life subject that is close to every Indian. Plus, my dream of becoming a cricketer is also going to be fulfilled through the film.”

Talking about working with Kabir Khan he says, “Well, honestly I am a fan of him since New York and other films which he did. The kind of sensibility and entertainment he serves in his movies grew this desire in me to work with him.”

The film is comprised of an ensemble cast including Ammy Virk, Hardy Sandhu, Chirag Patil, Jiiva, Sahil Khattar, Saqib Saleem, Adinath Kothare, and Tahir Raj Bhasin. Ranveer Singh will portray the role of former Indian cricket team Captain Kapil Dev. The film is based on India’s historic win in 1983 World Cup.
