“It feels great to work with Ranveer. He has too much of extra energy, which he could share with me. So, he gave me an ‘upliftment’ of energy! I am so happy that I did that film,” said Irani.

Irani also spoke of working with the 34-year-old actor in ’83’, while interacting with the media at Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards. “I am also a part of ’83’. I play Farokh Engineer, who used to be our wicketkeeper in 1960-’70s. In the film, Engineer does commentary. He (Farokh Engineer) was the only Indian commentator in the commentary box for BBC. Now our entire party goes there (for commentary) but back then, Farokh Engineer was the only Indian who used to do commentary (for BBC),” the actor revealed.

Working in ’83’, Irani said, “was a really nice experience”, and added: “When I shot at the Lords, I felt all my aspirations of childhood were coming true!”

’83’ also features Deepika Padukone, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Harrdy Sandhu, Ammy Virk, Pankaj Tripathi, Nishant Dahiya, Jiiva and Sahil Khattar.
