More good news for the lovers of cricket, movies and entertainment in general. After biopics on  AZHAR, MS DHONI and docu - feature on SACHIN, Phantom Films is set to recreate India's 1983 immortal world cup victory that changed the game of cricket in the sub-continent.

KAPIL

In a land that is more obsessed with cricketers than film stars, Madhu Mantena from Phantom Films got lucky enough to bag the rights for making a film on the 1983 World Cup win.

Recently, members from the winning 1983 world cup squad got together to mark the 33rd anniversary of the historic win  at a suburban five star hotel in Mumbai, during the celebration, the team signed papers and handed over the rights to Phantom Films who will now turn the dream win into ‘reel'ality.

Interestingly, Madhu Mantena is the son - in -law of the legendary West Indies batsmen - Sir Vivian Richards who incidentally was the captain of the losing West Indian side. Cricket enthusiasts still remember Kapil Dev's magnificent catch to dismiss the former swashbuckling batsmen who was known to turn fortunes of the game in his team favour within minutes.

Though the cast and other details are yet to be finalized, the movie is likely to go on floors by the end of this year or next year.

Kapil Dev's catch was the turning point in the famous world cup final which has become immortal for the die hards, hoping this movie rekindles the memories of India's most significant triumph in one day format.
