Internet is a weird little world. A 2014 picture of former Indian skipper Kapil Dev is going viral for all the amusing reasons. In the picture, tweeted by Harsha Bhogle, in July 2015, Kapil can be seen in an over the top flamboyant outfit. And, boy, he is pulling it off with confidence and panache. Well, but the extra-level of brightness and patterns on the trousers is reminding the internet of someone very special. No one has to be given a hint since it is so easy as the entire nation seems to be comparing Kapils' style to Bollywood hero Ranveer Singh.
And what makes the story even better is that Ranveer is currently shooting for 83, a movie in which he plays the role of Kapil Dev. Of course, the internet is in splits over this realisation of irony. God bless, throwback pictures.
Twitterati is going crazy cracking jokes like if Kapil Dev has been signed on to play the lead in Ranveer's biopic. There is more, where that comes from. Check out the funniest jokes on Kapil's outfit.
Here is Harsha Bhogle's original baller tweet:

You get the drift, right? Someone, please remind the internet that there are other jokes to crack. The 'nobody, absolutely nobody' format of jokes are not going to crack themselves.
Ranveer has been prepping for 83 for a pretty long time now which includes meeting Kapil himself. The movie will tell the story of how the Indian cricket team won the World Cup in 1983. The film's being directed by Kabir Khan and stars a plethora of actors essaying the roles of various cricketers, apart from Ranveer playing Kapil. Deepika Padukone has been roped in to play the role of Kapil's wife.
