The report mentioned that among others, the complaint named Vibri Media and its directors. The complaint, filed through advocate Rizwan Siddiquee, claimed that the accused produced the film ’83’ and made plans to cheat the complainant of its rights in the film. “Directors of Vibri Media submitted ‘manipulated and exaggerated’ business plans and profit and loss projections for the period starting from April 2012 till March 2020 and induced the complainant company to invest over Rs 15.90 crore,” the complaint alleged.

However, when they get off a good start, their captain Kapil Dev realizes it’s about reclaiming the lost respect and , decides to lead the team to take on the World Champions, West Indies, causing the countrywide obsession with Cricket. Ranveer Singh has stepped into the shoes of Kapil Dev while Deepika Padukone essays the role Romi, Kapil Dev’s wife in ’83’.
