MS Dhoni is one of the best and successful captains India has ever produced. His life and career is immensely inspirational and a guidance for many budding cricketers. To follow the suit on his life is the new entrant actor Angad Bedi. Recently Angad shot for Amazon Prime’s Original Show Inside Edge which is based on popular cricketing tournament. Angad will be seen playing the character of a cricket captain for one of the team which goes through lot of turmoil for being a captain of the team.
Angad to understand the character much better in such a situation took to reading material on MS Dhoni, watched several of his interviews and cricket matches on YouTube. His character in the show is that of a positive role model who supports his team extensively, much what Dhoni was always known for being extremely supportive for his own team. Dhoni lead India winning many grand finales under tremendous pressure and taking inspiration from such a personality is surely bear fruits for Angad in soon to be released show Inside Edge.
I remember when Dhoni first came to Delhi our coach of National stadium now known as Dayanchand stadium asked him “Aap kya karna chahte ho? Confidently he said “Sir main Bharat ka kaptaan banna chahta hoon”. He was humble but he was sure of his abilities and that I was drawn to the most. His head was very clear. And it showed in his leadership qualities even when he captained India with grace and dignity. I wanted to bring that grace and dignity in Arvind my character in Inside Edge.
