'83' has received positive reviews from critics and the general public. Singh's performance in the film stands out because he walks and talks like legendary cricketer Kapil Dev. Now, the actor is in talks for a biopic and has a choice of five scripts. In an interview with the Times of India, the actor said, "I am in discussion for 5 biopics. Three of those biopics are of sportspersons."
Sources claim that one of them is based on a paraplegic swimmer, and the actor was asked if this is true. To this, Singh stated, "I guess we should rather wait and give this time, those 5 biopics are all in different stages of development and hopefully one of them will develop into an extraordinary script and you will hear an official announcement soon."
Singh will next be seen with actress Alia Bhatt in filmmaker Karan Johar's directorial venture, 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani'. He's also set to star in filmmaker Rohit Shetty's 'Cirkus'. Actresses Jacqueline Fernandez, Pooja Hegde and actors Varun Sharma, and Murli Sharma round out the cast. Singh will also be seen in 'Jayeshbhai Jordaar'.
