The actor also revealed that it was in 2007 that he first met Dhoni and his family. He said,”When you do a movie you improve much as an actor but there are some movies where you gain an extra-mile of being a good human being after doing it.��I have great respect for Dhoni,”the 30 year old actor added.

The Captain Cool said,”He (Sushant) used to often ask a lot of questions to understand his life story and journey. At first I felt OK but after 15-20 minutes I was like that ‘I am talking only about myself…..I need a break now’,”said the 35 year old batsman-wicketkeeper-captain under whose leadership Team-India won T-20 world cup of 2007 and also clinched the title in 50 overs format in 2011″.
