Mahendra Singh Dhoni is an inspiration to millions. Called 'Captain Cool' for keeping his temper on and off the field, Dhoni ended India's 28-year-long wait to bring the World Cup home by hitting the winning six against Sri Lanka in the finals at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium in 2011.
Such is the scale of his achievement that even when he's actively playing cricket and leading team India in limited-overs formats, there's already a biopic being produced to chart the boy from Jharkhand's epic journey from struggle to success.
On Thursday, the trailer for M.S. Dhoni -- The Untold Story was released on YouTube, and soon Dhoni and Sushant Singh Rajput, who's portraying Dhoni in the biopic, took to Twitter.
As I walked the path, the journey became my life. Here's a glimpse of it. https://t.co/tNaMmQosSa— Mahendra Singh Dhoni (@msdhoni) August 11, 2016
Twitter was quick to react.
