MS Dhoni is nearly 38, but his zeal and dedication towards the game haven’t gone down by any stretch of the imagination. Albeit, the 2011-World Cup winning Indian captain is a pale shadow of his brutal self, he is yet to completely run out of gas. The Jharkhand-born wicketkeeper-batsman has been hit with criticism and brickbats a number of times, but millions of fans have also admired him.
The experienced campaigner is currently plying his trade in the 2019 edition of the World Cup in England and Wales. Dhoni hasn’t had the best of tournaments with the bat and has had his difficulties, but his teammates have backed him, including skipper Virat Kohli. In the meantime, Hrithik Roshan, the Bollywood actor one of the most loved individuals from the fraternity, named Dhoni as his most favourite.
Hrithik’s words of appreciation for MS Dhoni
“My mother and I, we like Mahendra Singh Dhoni. I feel he is a very good teacher, he is a great thinker. My mom will be very happy that I have taken his name, I think he is very inspiring, sorted and a planner,” the 45-year-old Hrithik was quoted as saying on Star Sports.
Hrithik, who made his Bollywood debut back in 2000 with Kaho Na Pyaar Hain, also shared some memories from the India-England match in the 2011 World Cup. The game was played at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore where both teams ended on 338 to yield a tie.
“I remember I had planned to go and watch the game in the stadium but due to some last minute work I could not make it, but after finishing my work I watched the last over in my house with my family and we really enjoyed the great victory,” he mentioned.
Hrithik also went down the memory lane when he was shooting for Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, and an India-England match was underway. To his delight, India came out trumps that time and he also sounded confident about the Men in Blue’s victory in Edgbaston. Unfortunately, that eventually wasn’t the case.
“During Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Shahrukh and I were in a car. We were hearing the commentary of a match, and co-incidence was, it was an India-England match. That match India had won, and today also India will win,” the veteran actor added.
