More than being an actor, I am happy that I had got to know so much of our culture,” says actor Abhilash who admits that he had go through lots of training for this film.
He continues to add saying, “Initially, I was so much surprised to hear director Ayyappan sir revealing me the title. I was wondering like what’s the link between ‘Dhoni’ a Cricket icon and ‘Kabaddi’ game. But as he continued to narrate me the script, I was really amazed with the concept and felt happy to be a part of this movie. It’s not just me, but everyone in the team has exerted an impeccable hard work.”
