Why scripting Ranveer Singh starrer '83 was an time-taking affair

One of the most anticipated movies of 2020 is Ranveer Singh starrer '83. Directed by Kabir Khan, the sports biopic was gearing up for its grand release in theatres on April 10th. But, the team had to hold the release due to coronavirus outbreak. Now the release has been postponed indefinitely. Speaking of the movie, Kabir Singh revealed there are plenty of interesting stories related to the 1983 world cup. He further explained that he could only pick 25 stories from the 100 stories he had. Which is why it took him one and a half years to finalize the script. For the unversed, '83 revolves around Cricket World Cup of 1983 with the focus on then captain Kapil Dev's character.
