Earlier in an interview to ANI, Tahir Raj Bhasin stated how essaying this role of Sunil Gavaskar is a ‘huge responsibility’ for him. He was quoted as saying, “It is indeed a huge responsibility to play Sunil Gavaskar on screen and I definitely want to pass this test by convincing everyone that they are seeing the legend on screen and not me.” About prepping up for this role he further mentioned, “To achieve this, my on-field practice is designed beyond playing good cricket and is targeted towards playing specific shots in Gavaskar’s style. My time in the nets is being treated like physical choreography for the character.” This character poster shows Tahir pulling Gavaskar’s signature straight drive shot.
