It might not do what a Salman Khan movie does but in just six days MD Dhoni: The Untold Story is already touching crores in the late 80s (at last count it was 88.63 crore rupees).
While everything from the actress who played Sakshi and Dhoni’s childhood friendships have been discussed, there is one thing in particular which has made cricket nerds stay up and take notice.
While Herry Tangri (or specifically his pictures) went very viral some days ago for how similar he looked to Yuvraj Singh, it also features a stellar 358 run knock by a young Yuvraj Singh.
Among the many stories that unravel in the movie, one is about Dhoni’s first meeting with Yuvraj Singh who’d be his future India teammate in Under-19 Cooch-Behar trophy final between Bihar and Punjab from 1999 played at the Keenan Stadium, Jamshedpur.
So did Yuvraj really score 358 to help Punjab 839 runs. The numbers are so staggering that it is hard to believe, right?
But it did happen and here is the proof.
