Now, in a recent interview with Gourav Kapoor, the legendary cricketer revealed that he walked out of the theatre while watching the film.
He said, "The first time I saw it, I was like okay this is a film. It did not impact me. The second time became very emotional.

I actually walked out of the theatre the third time, I was supposed to watch it." He even added how he couldn't stop crying while watching the film the second time.

The legendary cricketer also showered praises on Ranveer. He said, "I understand the passion but they are actors and they were working so hard that I was worried. I was with Ranveer in Delhi where he would be on the field for six-eight hours in the summers. I told him he was overdoing it and may injure himself. However, he was just so passionate about the film."
He added, "My daughter said that the moment Ranveer steps out of the bus, she too was taken aback by the similarities."
