Like every Indian I love cricket but maybe a little more because I was training to be a cricketer when I was young. I met Jimmy sir on the sets of Dishoom for the first time . At that time I had never imagined that I would be playing him in a film based on the 1983 World Cup . I was fascinated by the stories he shared not knowing that I would have to be him in them . But thank you @kabirkhankk for making this film and thinking of me for this incredible part. It’s my absolute honour to be playing Mohinder Amarnath. #83thefilm #jimmyamarnath #cricket @reliance.entertainment @mantenamadhu @vishnuinduri
