KGF star Yash in his latest interview revealed that MS Dhoni was one of his role models in life. After Baahubali, KGF is arguably the most anticipated movie in India. It was a huge Box Office success and was able to make room in the audience's hearts. Yash became an instant star in the showbiz and acquired the status of ”Pan India Star”.
Dhoni is regarded as one of the best captains that India has ever produced. He possesses a massive fan-following not only in the country but across the globe. His ability to stay calm and composed on the cricket field under the toughest of situations is admired by many.
The Indian wicket-keeper is the only Indian skipper to have won three ICC trophies, T20 World Cup 2007, ICC World Cup 2011, and the Champions Trophy in 2013. He bid adieu to Test cricket back in 2014 and has been the regular part of Team India until the 2019 World Cup.
After India lost a close and heartbreaking semi-final to New Zealand, he took a sabbatical and went on to serve the Paramilitary forces for two months. And, currently, he is spending his time off from cricket with his family in his hometown, Ranchi.
Yash was quizzed over, who inspired and motivated him in his life to which the KGF actor said that Dhoni’s attitude was quite inspiring for him along with India Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He also took the name of Shankar Nag saying he was a big inspiration in their state.
The South Indian actor is busy with the shooting of KGF Chapter 2 which is a sequel to the hit 2018 Kannada film. It is slated for an April 2020 release. His blockbuster movie had also received the best Action award and best special effects award at the 66th National Film Awards.
