    During a conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Mr. & Mrs. Mahi actor was asked if the film is based on the life of cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni because of the similarity in names. Janhvi Kapoor replied that the film is not based on his life but feels very fortunate that Dhoni let the makers use his name. The actress added that even though the film is not based on the life of the cricketer, the philosophy of the film is very similar to the ideology of Dhoni, who believes in trusting the process.

    “Anything that has Dhoni sir’s name, anything that Thala touches, it turns to gold, and we hope we have the same luck. Our directors have been obsessed with him, not just for cricket but also for his personality and his aura,” she said. Janhvi revealed that director Sharan Sharma showed them a couple of videos of the cricketer talking and the moral of their film is very similar to that of Dhoni - enjoying the process without thinking too much about the result.
