Filmmaker Kabir Khan's next directorial venture "'83" is set to go on floors from June 5 in Glasgow, Scotland. The film features Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, captain of the World Cup-winning Indian cricket team of 1983.

The team will shoot at a local cricket club in the Scottish port city for a week, followed by other popular locations like Dulwich college in London, Edinburgh cricket club, Nevill Ground at Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent and the Oval cricket ground. "Since it's a real-life story, this film involved a lot of training and research. Now that it's going on the floors, starting with the Glasgow schedule, everyone's excited to recreate a journey that made history, all thanks to our cricketing heroes of the '83 team," Kabir said in a statement.

The film will chronicle India's win under Kapil's captainship when the team defeated West Indies in the final to clinch their first-ever World Cup trophy in 1983. The film, presented by Reliance Entertainment, also features Pankaj Tripathi, Saqib Saleem, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jatin Sharma, Ammy Virk and Hardy Sandhu.
