He is a brilliant actor and sometimes even precedes professional actors. With proper expressions he gave all of the shots perfectly as he is a perfectionist” said Arindam Sil.
“I am immensely thrilled after working with Kapil Dev as he has been my childhood hero. I started watching cricket at around 1975 and my first hero was Kapil Dev who took India to the world level and I have huge memories of him.
