Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says when Mahendra Singh Dhoni visited him on the set of 2003 film ‘Baghban’, the whole cast and crew, including him, was in awe of the former India skipper.

The ‘Piku’ star shared an incident when Dhoni visited him on the ‘Baghban’ set. "The memory goes on for years and years right down to present times when Sachin and MS Dhoni and all the younger players who exhibit such tremendous energy and skills on the pitch. Dhoni walking on to the set of ‘Baghban' while I was shooting and all of us in absolute awe of the man," he wrote.

Big B also recounted how once while playing a friendly match with cricketers, he got slammed when he failed to recognise the late spin bowler Vinoo Mankad. "Those friendly charity cricket matches that the film industry played with the Indian team.

That moment when I was bowling and the umpire guiding me by telling me to bowl over the wicket and shorter." "And I was looking at him with some dismay, as to why he was guiding me and I did not like being told so.

On disclosing my displeasure to another team member, he said: “You absolute idiot. That umpire is the great Vinoo Mankad. After that, I did not know where to hide my face from Mr Mankad," he said. The 74-year-old is often seen enjoying Indian Premier League games alongside his son Abhishek Bachchan.
