83, a movie that brings to screen India’s 1983 cricket world cup win, releases today.

Amul joins the ‘83’ bandwagon with a nod to Kapil Dev

Starring Ranveer Singh, 83 tells us the story of how the Indian cricket team, serious underdogs, pulled off one of the biggest surprises of the era by defeating the formidable West Indies to lift the cricket world cup.

The caption “Kappeals to everyone!” is a clever nod to Amul butter’s universal fame and adoration as well as the love Kapil Dev, the world cup winning captain, enjoys in the country.
