NEW DELHI: In June 1983, veteran cricketer Kapil Dev led his men to win the prudential World Cup Cricket by defeating the then two time defending champions West Indies in the finals, widely regarded as one of the greatest upsets in the world of sport.

That picture of Kapil Dev holding the World Cup title at the balcony at the Lords Cricket Ground has become part of cricket folklore and has become etched in collective memory of Indians as one of the greatest sporting achievements.

Kapil while reminiscing about that victory has revealed that a film is being made on the team?s journey during the 1983 World Cup. ?I wish all the success to Vishnu (Vishnu Vardhan Induri, founder of Celebrity Cricket League) who is producing the movie and his team," he said.

He added, "It is heartening to see the trend of movies being made on sports in our country which I am sure will inspire the youth to get motivated and do well for the country.?

?In what seems like a rather bizarre turn of events even three decades after the historic World Cup victory, a cricket crazy country like India has not produced a single feature film that captures the achievement. In many ways that victory was instrumental in turning cricket into a religion it has become in India. I was a school kid then and still remember the euphoria surrounding the victory. The 1983 World Cup is seminal event in the history of sport in India and I believe it?s a story that needs to be told,? says Induri.

Sanjay Puran Singh, who won the National Award for his debut film Lahore is directing the film. ?We are in touch with the members of the 1983 World Cup winning team and they have lent their full support to us. The film is in the pre-production stage at the moment and we are hoping to finish the casting and hit the floors in the first quarter of 2015,? says Induri, promising that the film will turn out to be a proper Bollywood feature film on sports that will set a new benchmark.
