Rohit roy was bowled over by Mahendra Singh Dhoni
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.
