New Delhi [India], Sept. 18 (ANI): India's one of the most loved cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni, while promoting his upcoming biopic ' MS Dhoni - The Untold Story', admitted that he had never talked to his parents about his love for cricket while growing up.

While talking about the difficulties he faced to narrate his story to the filmmaker, the 35-year-ols sportsmen said, "All those things that had happened became fresh in my memory - from where I lived, how my school was, where we played. I went blank. It was nice to be in the past for a moment and you get a view of what others think about me," reports Filmfare.

Adding, "I have never talked to my parents about cricket and it was nice to get a glimpse of what they really thought about me."

Dhoni is currently promoting his biopic in the USA along with wife Sakshi.

He also pointed out that he'd initially told film's director Neeraj Pandey during the conceptual phase that the movie shouldn't glorify him.

"One thing I told Pandey (director Neeraj) is that this movie should not be to glorify me. It's about the journey of a professional sportsperson and that's what it should depict," he said.

Adding, "I was a little worried when initially the concept of the movie came but once we were in, I was not worried about it as I was just narrating my side of the story."

The movie, starring Sushant Singh Rajput, is scheduled to release on September 30. (ANI)
