You met Dhoni for the series, what is the most interesting thing about him that you discovered and left you amazed?
I did had an inclination of how he is and we all know about the captain cool and somebody who doesn’t get ruffled into any situation But what did pleasantly surprised me is that there is a very sensitive side to him. We spoke for hours and hours and what was revealed was his sensitive side That you could see the emotions despite being so cool. You could see emotions in his eyes while he was talking about the days of his matches (Chennai Super Kings). He was completely open and there was no filter and that was an interesting experience for me to be able to share those moments with him.
All original footages, it is unscripted …it is about real people; it is about real footages from the matches and that is what going to make it really engaging. Whatever you is absolutely genuine and true. We had a huge team working on the real footages.
“Roar of the Lion” will be streaming on Hotstar from March 20.
