I will not watch MS Dhoni, says Gautam Gambhir
Gautam Gambhir will not watch MS Dhoni, Here is the reason
I will not watch MS Dhoni, says Gautam Gambhir:-Recently, a tweet by Gautam Gambhir created a lot of outrage amongst the Indian cricket fans and especially among Dhoni’s fans. He took a sort of dig against the Indian Cricket team’s captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s upcoming biopic – ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’. According to him, biopics should be made on them, who have contributed more to nation and that’s why he will not watch it.
The Tweet Controversy
Gautam had tweeted an image with a quote, which said, “I do not believe in biopics on the cricketers. I think biopics should be made on those people, who have contributed more to the country than any cricketer. There are many people in our country who have done tremendous noble deeds for the country. Therefore a biopic should be made on them.”
After reading this many cricket fans were disheartened by his statement. Where, Gautam’s fans supported him ,Dhoni’s fans made fun of him.
However, later on Gautam clarified that he was not against ‘any’ particular cricketer’s biopic but against the whole concept of making such biopics.
He tweeted, “My critics took it the wrong way. For I am not against ANY particular cricketer’s biopic, I am against the very whole concept of making biopic’s, including a biopic on my own life.”
Oh Gosh! He doesn’t want to watch M.S Dhoni and another controversy
After his clarification tweet, the protest against him died down over night. However, he again pulled himself down in a controversy.

In an interview to a leading daily he said, that he will never –ever go to watch biopic on any cricketer’s life. According to him, in spite of making films on cricketers, one should make films on those, who have contributed more to the society such as our soldiers. He said why do we all forget our soldiers who sacrifice their lives for the sake our nation?
“I will never want someone ever to make a biopic on me. If any person approaches me, I would ask them to approach someone who has done big and better things in life”, Gambhir further added.
Gautam Gambhir has a valid point
While Gautam’s comments do make sense, it might just tickle off captain cool – MSD because Gautam Gambhir might not watch his biopic.
Well, all friends support each other, but when you go on a public platform and criticize the concept of biopics on the cricketers, that too when it is your friend’s movie could be a bad idea, but then he is talking sense and it’s his personal choice to watch or not to watch the movie?
Dhoni had a good bond with Gambhir but it now seems that their friendship has lost the spark.
The Awaited Biopic will release on September 30
Talking about the movie- M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, we will see Sushant Singh Rajput portraying Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the Neeraj Pandey directorial.
