As the 10th sea­son of In­dian Premier League has kicked off, cricket fans are glued to the screen and ac­tor Ro­hit Roy (right) is no dif­fer­ent. He re­calls his first meet­ing with crick­eter Ma­hen­dra Singh Dhoni (far right) in 2014, who is now part of the Pune team in the se­ries, but played for Chen­nai then. “A meet­ing with Dhoni in Jaipur dur­ing the IPL games is one im­por­tant life event etched in my mem­ory. I was sup­port­ing Ra­jasthan Roy­als who were play­ing Chen­nai [Dhoni’s team at that time] and we beat them in the game,” says Roy.

Ac­cord­ing to him, Dhoni’s spir­its weren’t damp­ened by the de­feat. “Af­ter the match I went to meet Mahi in his room and he was re­lax­ing. I thought that he would be de­spon­dent. Out of cu­rios­ity, I asked him how was he so com­posed. To which he said, ‘Win­ning and los­ing is a part of ev­ery­one’s jour­ney. If I don’t lose to­day, I won’t en­joy the win to­mor­row,” re­calls Roy, adding that these words left a huge im­pact on his mind.
