MS Dhoni has done so much for the country: Chandrachur Singh lauds Captain Cool
When asked about his views on MS Dhoni's international cricket retirement, Chandrachur Singh replied:
"I think he is a man who has done so much for our country, and I think he really changed the leadership in Indian cricket, the way we do the leadership. His film also depicts his story very beautifully. He is a complete fighter and is still completely calm. He changed Indian cricket is played and the way it should be led forward. I have seen that he has contributed enough, and he knows best when he has to retire."
The Bollywood actor stated that we should all be grateful to MS Dhoni for his services to the nation. He also named the former Indian skipper as one of his two favourite cricketers, with the other being Virat Kohli.
Chandrachur Singh also revealed that he would love to play Virat Kohli in the cricket star's biopic. However, since age is not in his favour, he said that he could play Sir Garfield Sobers or Sir Richard Hadlee in a biopic of their lives instead.Published 13 Sep 2020, 10:11 IST
