After announcing Ranveer Singh as former captain Kapil Dev in the upcoming movie on India winning the 1983 World Cup, director Kabir Khan is said to have begun his hunt for the rest of the cast. Buzz has it that Khan has approached Katrina Kaif to play Romi Dev, wife of the former Indian cricketer.

"So far, Kabir has not locked the lead actress. Two other actresses have been finalised, one is a newcomer and another has been suggested by Ranveer. If Katrina comes on board, it will be her first film opposite Ranveer," DNA newspaper quoted a source as saying.

If Kaif gives her nod, then it will be her first film with Singh, while she has previously worked with director Khan in Ek Tha Tiger (2012), New York (2009) and Phantom (2015).
