Mahender Singh Dhoni seems to be happy with a biopic movie made on him and convinced with the actor Sushant Singh Rajput who has played his role in the movie. The promos seems promising that we will see the real journey of MS Dhoni.
Mahinder Singh Dhoni told that he conveyed to the director Neeraj Pandey during the conceptual phase that he should not be glorified instead the movie should focus on his journey, the struggle which he has done in his life to achieve what he is today and decision making process.
He was in the United States along with his wife Sakshi and film producer Arun Pandey to promote his movies which will be released on 30th September. Dhoni told many things about his life when he used to live in a small town and his journey from there to being the most respected captain of Indian cricket team.
He also further explained that he clearly told the director that being a person who likes to live in present, it was difficult for him to go back into his life and narrate his story for the movie but when he saw the unedited version of the movie for the first time, he was in his past again as memories of his childhood, where he lived and how he played flooded his mind. His all memories became fresh.
He said that it was nice to be in the past for a moment and he get a view of what others think about him. He had never talked to his parents about cricket and it was nice to get a glimpse of what they really thought about him.
When he was asked that whether he was worried about how the world will perceive him as a human being and cricketer after watching the movies he replied that he was little worried when initially the concept of the film came but one they were in, he was not worried about it as he was just narrating his side of the story.
He shared some moments from his cricket career life that had a huge impact on him. He told that when the Indian cricket team loses the 2007 World Cup the reactions of cricket fans against him and the team had a great impact on him also it was the turning point of his life.
He said that in India when the team loses a cricket match, they are perceived as those people who have committed a crime or terrorists. After losing the 2007 World cup fans even pelted stones at his residence.
Dhoni feels that merely ploughing money into sports does not translate into medals for the country and investment is needed over a period of time in the form of parents and schools encouraging children to take up sports and achieve something in Sports World.
He was at the promotional even of his film in New York where he concluded his event with the following statement “I think it is very important for parents and schools to push (their children) for sports and promote sports. That is how you will bring medals when it comes to games such as the Olympics. Money doesn’t directly get you medals. Cannot be result oriented alone, you have to work over a period of time and educate people.”

Rajesh Khanna’s Aashirwad
Many people would not know that superstar of the millennium, the first superstar Rajesh Khanna aka Kaka purchased the sea-facing magnificent bungalow “Aashirwad”, from Rajendra Kumar, popularly known as Jubilee Kumar in the then Bombay Film Industry who gave 25 silver jubilees in a row while staying in “Dimple”, the earlier name of Aashirwad , a gracious and spacious Bungalow in Bombay’s Carter Road, facing the the wide-open sea.
By instinct and nature Kaka was not an atheist but a sort of an orthodox who always believed in God, a supernatural power that always blessed him.
He would always tell his friends in the industry that there are several, more handsome men, more in height and personality in Bollywood, then how come he’d become a superstar loved and adored by millions of ardent fans globally?
He was skeptical and confused about himself and bore a sort of inferiority complex about him being a star and that was the prime reason that he believed in God. According to him, luck always favored him in his heydays as a superstar for at least two decades in a row.
It is said that when Kaka had first seen the spacious house of Rajendra Kumar at Carter Road, Mumbai’s prime location, he always wanted to have such a splendid house.
There was another hidden reason behind it i.e. it was owned by none other than Jubilee Kumar, the then superstar, and heartthrob of millions.
Kaka had a feeling that Rajendra Kumar became Jubilee Kumar, giving 25 hits in a row that became silver jubblies while staying in this Bungalow, then known as Dimple. And as such it might be a lucky bungalow, absolutely. Therefore his desperate interest in “DIMPLE” git generated tremendously. But for Rajendra Kumar, it was unlucky bungalow as his downfall had started by then. He wanted to sell it as due to his decline at the box office his financial condition was in jeopardy…
Therefore when Rajendra Kumar was facing financial hardships, Rajesh Khanna got an opportunity to fix a deal.
Considering the Bungalow as a lucky one that made Rajendra Kumar Jubilee Kumar, Kaka wasted no time to purchase this house.
It was Hathi Mere Sathi’s, first heavy advance installment that helped Kaka to finalize the deal with Rajendra Kumar.
When the film producer of Hathi Mere Sathi from South approached Kaka to do his film, the latter wasn’t interested to work with animals. But he acted because he was in need of money to buy Rajendra Kumar’s house. Kaka had put a condition that if he was given half of the signing amount in advance, he would do the film. The producer readily agreed as Rajesh Khanna’s popularity those days was on its peak. Rajesh Khanna got Rs 6 lakhs in advance and bought Dimple and later named as Aashirwad.
And undoubtedly Aashirwad gave Kaka name, fame and excessive wealth, till his death.
Though Kaka also confronted the worst period of his life in this house but till Kaka’s unfortunate death it was always dear and the most adored asset of his life.
Rajesh Khanna’s last wish, though not declared officially, was to convert Aashirwad to Super Star Rajesh Khanna Museum. His most loved and adored prized possession was not destined to be so. His family against the latter’s heartiest wishes sold it after his demise. His fans say Kaka’s soul definitely must be haunting this house, which was abruptly and arbitrarily sold against his wishes.
Today there is a multistorey building in place of Aashirwad thus crushing his last hearty wish to turn it into Super Star Rajesh Khanna Museum; the magnificent bungalow which Kaka cherished the most.
Kartik Aryan owns apartment in which he was a paying guest once upon time…
Kartik Aaryan, a Gwalior boy from no film background has won the hearts across the nation. The blockbusters like Pyaar Ka Punchnama series and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety have proved that he is going to be a superstar in the future.
Kartik, the Heartthrob of many girls across India, has owned the apartment in which he used to live as a paying guest during his struggling phase. As per the media sources, he has paid INR 1.6 crore for the flat with a carpet area of 459 sq. ft. on the fifth-floor of Rajkiran Co-op Housing Society, Yari Road.
In a talk show earlier, Kartik while mentioning about his struggle in Mumbai has told “I didn’t have a place to stay when I came to Mumbai. I stayed in a hostel. I have stayed with 12 guys in a flat. That was something I never thought I would do because I hail from Gwalior, which is not an expensive city to live in, but Mumbai is really expensive”.
He also added “We had our share of struggles. We used to go to auditions, wahaan pe ‘not fit’ ho jaata tha. I used to travel without tickets in local trains from Navi Mumbai to Mumbai when I was auditioning. I didn’t even have that much money,”.
On the professional front, Kartik’s upcoming movies include Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal 2, where the actor will share the screen with Sara Ali Khan along with Randeep Hooda. The sequel is scheduled to be released on February 14, 2020.
His other projects in the pipeline are Mudassar Aziz’s Pati Patni aur Woh, Dostana 2 with Janhavi Kapoor and Chashme Badoor Remake with Jacqueline Fernandez.
