India lifted its first ICC Cricket World Cup under Kapil Dev AFP

Kapil Dev, known for his on-field heroics for India,was quite a naughty child. In a recent visit to Chandigarh, Dev reminisced about his school days and how he still cherishes the time spent with his friends. According to a report published in aajtak.intoday.in, Kapil said how he bunked school to watch movies.

The 1983 World Cup-winning skipper confessed his love for movies and claimed that he was too good at not getting caught. Talking about Chandigarh, Dev said that the city holds a special place in his heart and that he comes to city whenever he feels like. Dev, who once had a hotel in Chandigarh, said that his shifting to Delhi was the main reason of the premises shutting down.

Dev as usual refrained from making any controversial comments. When quizzed about Mohammad Azharuddin s ouster from Hyderabad Cricket Association’s Special Body Meeting, Dev remained quiet and let the question slip by.
