Lord's Cricket Ground Welcomes '83 Screening

In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, director Kabir Khan was asked about the decision to hold the screening of '83 at Lord's Cricket Ground. Kabir Khan revealed, "No. Surprisingly, the Lord's management reached out to us. They suggested the idea, considering '83 is an iconic film that filmed its climax at Lord's. It seems to be a trend nowadays to showcase films in locations where they were shot. We have seen screenings of films like The Shawshank Redemption (1994) taking place in prisons."

Kabir Khan, the director of '83, expressed his excitement for the unique screening experience at Lord's Cricket Ground, assuring that it will be a delightful and enjoyable two-day event. He mentioned, "It'll be like a nice two-day picnic. There'll be Indian food available to the patrons.

Unprecedented Experience: On-field Seating for '83

An intriguing aspect of the screening of '83 is that ticket holders will have the unique opportunity to sit on the turf instead of the conventional stands. Director Kabir Khan expressed, "So the idea is to let people step onto the ground. That's where they can sit and enjoy the film on the big screen."

About '83

’83, a film based on the inspiring story of the Indian cricket team's victory in the 1983 World Cup, featured Ranveer Singh in the lead role, portraying the legendary Kapil Dev. When questioned about the presence of Ranveer and other cast members at the screening, director Kabir Khan responded, "I am not sure. It all depends on their dates and whether they are available. But I'll be there alongside Kapil Dev and Balwinder Singh Sandhu. Following the screening, we will engage with the audience, addressing their inquiries." Notably, Balwinder Singh Sandhu served as both the associate producer and a key figure in the film.

Lord's chose July 15 and 16 for the '83 film screening to avoid clashes with the Ashes. 2023 marks 40 years since India's World Cup win at Lord's on June 25, 1983.
