Producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala has come on board to back Kabir Khan’s sports drama ’83 along with Madhu Mantena and Anil Ambani’s Reliance Entertainment. Sajid and Madhu will also co-produce three more films over a period of three years.

’83 revolves around India’s first victory in the cricket World Cup in 1983, and features Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, India’s captain. The film, which will be made in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, is also Ranveer’s first trilingual project.

The movie has been creating a lot of buzz ever since it was announced. Sajid has been turning co-producer with this film. He is being counted among the most successful producers in Bollywood, with his banner having close to 65 years of experience in the Indian entertainment business. The producer, who is known for impressive production values, owns some of B-Town’s popular franchises, including Housefull, Baaghi and Judwaa.

“All four scripts are excellent. As a producer, one has to commit to the content more than anything else. Coming on board for ’83 is a feeling of personal joy, as I saw that glorious moment on live television. There are certain projects that develop an aura around them and ’83 is one of them,” Nadiadwala said. 

According to Mantena, “Sajid is one of the most valuable anchors a film can get. He has an astute understanding of content and business and is completely hands-on as a producer. We will immensely benefit from this partnership.”
