Actor Jiiva is going through a rough patch in his career with most of his recent films not being able to fare well. But it seems good days are approaching for the actor who will next be seen in Gorilla. This film stars a Chimpanzee in the central role and also features Shalini Pandey. The makers recently unveiled the first look posters of the film which was well appreciated by the audience. But as the actor gears up for the release, there’s another interesting piece of news that is doing the rounds.
According to reports, Jiiva will make his debut in Bollywood with Ranveer Singh’s 83. Reports reveal that the actor will be seen playing cricketer Krishnamachari Srikanth who played a key role in the success of Indian cricket in the 80’s. Reportedly, director Kabir Khan was hell bent on singing a Tamil actor to play Kris Srikanth’s part in the film which is based on the life of successful Indian cricketer Kapil Dev.
