Speaking at the event, Dhoni said that he first came to Hyderabad back in 2000 when he was still playing first-class cricket. ‘Biryani, bangles, and the baskets are the three things I love most about Hyderabad. The city has proved lucky for the Indian team, and we have won several matches here,’ Dhoni added.
Talking about films, Dhoni said, ‘I have seen ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Aparichithudu.’ Now, I am waiting for ‘Baahubali 2’. South has good technicians and actors, and many southern films are getting remade in Bollywood. South movie lovers have the unmatchable craze for movies and their favorite heroes’.
SS Rajamouli has graced the event as chief guest. He praised Dhoni for becoming a huge inspiration for youth by making the dream of an ordinary ticket collector turning into one of the greatest cricketers of all time a reality.
