While the film surprisingly didn’t yield the desired result, but there is no denying that Ranveer Singh gave one of his finest performances as the legendary Indian cricketer Kapil Dev in 83 [2021] – the sports film based on Indian cricket team’s maiden World Cup triumph in 1983, England.

In a rare change, the popular Filmfare Awards didn’t go by box office, but decided to award Singh the Best Actor [Male] award at a glittering ceremony last night in Mumbai. This is Singh’s 4th Best Actor trophy [including one Critics’ Award].

“The past few years have been wonderful. This is the 4th Filmfare in about 6 years which is pretty awesome. I have had the privilege of working with some of the finest filmmakers in the country. I credit them with this (trophy). This achievement is only possible because they believe in me and they believe I can be part of their vision and contribute as an artiste and bring to life the story that they want to tell,” Singh said at the awards night.

The popular, versatile actor took the moment to praise the legendary Indian cricketer Kapil Dev, dedicating this award to him.

He says, “This was a very special part and once I am done with my responsibilities here I will call Kapil Dev sir. Just cannot wait to speak to Kapil paaji and connect with him and tell him that this is for him. Winning 5 Filmfare Best Actor awards feels quite incredible and is really humbling.”

On the work front, Ranveer will be next seen in Rohit Shetty’s Cirkus and Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani.
