Ranveer Singh seems to be eating, drinking and living cricket ever since he has gone into the character of legendary Kapil Dev for the upcoming film on India’s title triumph in the 1983 World Cup. The lead character in of the ’83, Ranveer has been hogging as much lime light in England as the icons of the Indian cricket team gunning for the third ICC World Cup crown for India.

The Bollywood star who plays onscreen Kapil Dev while livening up the commentary box during India’s win over Pakistan at the Old Trafford, Manchester, on June 16, also had some good time with the members of the Indian cricket team.

However, the carefree actor has invited a legal warning from WWE wrestler Brock Lesnar for hailing all-rounder Hardik Pandya with phrase “Eat. Sleep. Dominate. Repeat.” He has tweeted the phrase on his official twitter handle @RanveerOfficial with his and Pandya’s picture.

This has not gone down well with the WWE Wrestler, whose advocate Paul Heyman has sent a legal warning to the actor, claiming that the catchphrase is made popular by the Heyman and Lesnar duo. Heyman would root for Lesnar by shouting – “Eat, Sleep, Conquer, Repeat,” every time the latter stepped inside the ring.

Responding to Ranveer’s tweet, Heyman wrote on his twitter handle @HeymanHustle”@RanveerOfficial ARE YOU F’N KIDDING ME???????????

“1 – It’s Eat Sleep CONQUER Repeat

“2 – Copyright #YourHumbleAdvocate and @BrockLesnar

“3 – I am litigious


The Heyman’s response may also been in good humour. But a warning cannot be ignored when it is coming from an advocate.
