M S Dhoni meets RajinikanthPR Handout

He was known as Captain Cool and is considered one of the best cricket captains of team India. And today, cricketer M S Dhoni's life story will be seen on-screen in the film MS Dhoni – the Untold Story. Dhoni has been busy promoting the film and he was in Chennai on Friday.

The fans and audience could not get enough of Dhoni when he got up to speak during the promotions. Dhoni stated, "Tamil Nadu is one of my favorite places in India and this was the main reason I took up the captaincy of Chennai Super Kings." As everyone knows, Dhoni led CSK in the IPL which went on to win the title in 2010 and 2011.

But Captain Cool also spoke about things other than cricket. He said, "I have experiences of having food in various parts of India but I can say that Chennai's biryani is the best I have had. It's difficult to find such tasteful biriyani in any other part of the country."

And as for the pretty women in the state, what does he think? "I have great respect for the dressing sense of Tamil Nadu ladies," Dhoni said.

Actor Suriya's wife, actress Jyothika and their young daughter Diya and son were present on the occasion. Diya asked Dhoni about which his favourite place was between home, school and the cricket stadium. Dhoni replied, "The playground is my second school and school is my second house and my home is my second playground!" The cricketer also told Diya that he was a huge fan of her father. He added, "I was stunned after seeing Suriya's Singam in Hindi."

But Suirya's kids were not willing to let him go so easily. When he was asked how he was as a schoolkid by Suriya's son Dev, Dhoni said, "I was very naughty and that's how young kids should be." Dev told him cheekily, "I am also naughty like you."

Fans were not willing to let Dhoni go and they asked him about his favourite actor. The cricketer said proudly, "I am a big fan and follower of Superstar Rajini." And his favourite dialogue? Dhoni smashed out the famous line, "Enn vazhi thani vazhi." (My style is unique)
