Actor Saqib Saleem is all set to play the role of Mohinder Amarnath in Kabir Khan's forthcoming film '83, which is based on India's iconic win at 1983 Cricket World Cup. Saqib, who is best-known for his performances in films such as Mere Dad Ki Maruti, Bombay Talkies and Hawaa Hawaai, announced his association with the project by sharing an extensive post on his Instagram profile. In his post, the Race 3 actor thanked the film's director Kabir Khan for giving him the opportunity to play Mohinder Amarnath and wrote: "Thank you Kabir Khan for making this film and thinking of me for this incredible part. It's my absolute honour to be playing Mohinder Amarnath."

Saqib Saleem, who worked with Mohinder Amarnath in the 2017 film Dishoom, said that he is really excited to portray the role of the legendary cricketer on screen. "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," wrote Saqib.
