Ranveer Singh slays Kapil Dev's Nataraj shot
If MS Dhoni has been known for Helicopter shots, Kapil Dev had epitomized the Nataraj shots. Ranveer Singh, who is currently essaying the legendary Dev in '83' (Hindi), has mastered the posture. A glimpse of the iconic Natraj pose is out. It's from the Tunbridge Wells ground match in which Dev scored 175 runs against Zimbabwe in the 1983 world cup semi-finals.
