Paramjit's key involvement in acquiring Dhoni's first bat sponsorship demonstrates his priceless help in the early stages of Dhoni's cricket career, when he was struggling. This working relationship was emphasized in the film "MS Dhoni: The Untold Story," which focused light on Paramjit's important role in defining Dhoni's professional path. The movie was released in 2016; Dhoni's character was played by the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Dhoni's relationship with the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will extend until the 2024 IPL season, when he will captain the team again. CSK's triumph over Gujarat Titans (GT) in the IPL 2023 final, which was won by five wickets using the DLS system, reinforced Dhoni's leadership abilities.

In the exciting IPL 2023 final, GT established a daunting total of 214/4 in 20 overs, with Sai Sudharsan leading the way with an outstanding knock of 96 runs off 47 balls. CSK's Matheesha Pathirana made significant contributions with the ball, capturing two wickets.

Following the DLS method after the game was affected by rain, CSK faced a revised 171-run target, which they successfully chased down, reaching 171/5 in 15 overs. Shivam Dube's incredible unbeaten knock, 32* off 21 balls was essential to CSK's victory, but GT's Mohit Sharma stood out with three wickets.
