During the promotions of The Forgotten Army back in January 2020, Kabir Khan told Bollywood Hungama, filmmaker Kabir Khan opened up about Ranveer Singh emulating Captain Kapil Dev for 83.  "He's put in a lot of hardwork, not in just the way he looks, the way he plays. What I must say is there's a lot being talked about, the way he's done his hair and everything. But most important is actually his expression. It's the expression that counts. You can give him the features but if the expression doesn't match Kapil Dev, he will just not look like Kapil Dev. And that is what Ranveer has achieved and totally on his own of course. We gave him the access and then we just went to live with Kapil sir, moved into his house in New Delhi, and just didn't leave him - whether he was playing golf, whether he was having business meetings, having breakfast, lunch, dinner, we just standing, sitting and observing him chatting with him. That's what makes him [who he is]," he revealed.
