When asked Dhoni is he worried of nervous about this film he said: “I am not worried at all as I have confidence in the crew. Right from the start we were in the same page. I have seen his (Neeraj Pandey) films and I like how he puts things on screen. We were clear right from the beginning we do not want to make a movie which makes me a hero or glamorises me.”
“It was more about the journey so that people can relate to it. At the end of the day when you reach the goal it’s the small decisions that you take has the impact what happens inbetween that is what pushes me transforms me to what I am today. The movie is more about the journey and it shows what all happened with me. It’s a bit awkward to watch your own movie. At the same time I felt I was not the one who was very nervous it was Sushant,” he added.
Dhoni, has co-produced the biopic, which stars Sushant Singh Rajput in the titular role.
