Apart from learning the nuances of cricket, the video also features Ranveer working out at the gym. “Now Kapil Sir is coming. We all better look like we know how to play cricket,” Ranveer said in the video. Seems like a lot of fun, for sure. “The incredible untold story of India’s greatest victory,” reads Ranveer’s caption of the video while he also mentioned the release date of the film, April 10, 2020.
