An insight into the life and passion of the leg-spinner Pravin Tambe who started playing for the Indian Premiere League (IPL) cricket team Rajasthan Royals at the age of 41. This is what Kaun Pravin Tambe is about with Shreyas Talpade essaying the role of Tambe.
In Kaun Pravin Tambe, Shreyas Talpade returns as an aspiring cricketer who believes age is just a number. The film celebrates the extraordinary journey of ageless cricketer Pravin Tambe, a right-armed spinner, who made his cricket league debut at the age of 41. With no experience of playing the sport internationally or for that matter even domestic matches, he knew he could do it and so he did.
The biopic is directed by Jayprad Desai and written by Kiran Yadnyopavit.
Shreyas, who was last heard as Allu Arjun’s voice for the Hindi dubbing of Pushpa: The Rise, launched the trailer of Kaun Pravin Tambe? on social media and wrote, “”Bas ek aur over” karte karte duniya ki sabse badi league tak pahunch gaye! Wah Pravin Tambe, kya story hai aapki! It’s never too late to start, they say…”
Rahul Dravid begins by talking about Pravin Tambe and the trailer then takes us into the life and hardships of this ordinary man with extraordinary dreams. Scenes from his life play and each one of them leaves you inspired and emotional at the same time.
The movie will also feature Ashish Vidyarthi, Parambrata Chaterjee and Anjali Patil in pivotal roles.
Talking about the film, cricketer Pravin Tambe said in a statement, “I feel humbled that my story has inspired so many and now has been made into a film. My only wish is that more and more people get inspired to live their dreams and never underestimate their potential no matter what their circumstances are and never give up. My family & loved ones can’t wait to see my story come alive, and for me, it is going to be a very special day!”
Kaun Pravin Tambe is set to premiere on April 1, on Disney Plus Hotstar.
