Discussing their arrangements and preparations to be ready for a film that features India's first cricket World CUp triumph, Ranveer stated, "We get ourselves extremely honored and privileged to be a part of this team.
Tahir Raj Bhasin, who will be enacting Sunil Gavaskar, stated, "What makes this film fascinating and what will make it epic is the human interest story.
Saqib Saleem who will be playing Mohinder Amarnath is himself is a huge self-admitted cricket fan, said that the fire in him burned up as he wore the Indian jersey during the photoshoot itself.
Jatin Sarna who will play Yashpal Sharma in the film wasn’t much aware about the cricketer’s contribution as such. But when he got the role, he could completely relate to the character, his anger and the way he channelised his anger in a positive way.
Ranveer Singh added, “It’s just such a privilege to have the former players come, talk to us and coach us.”
