    Anupam Kher played the role of Paan Singh Dhoni in the movie MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. The veteran actor recently talked about the movie in a candid chat.

    He told IANS, "The first thing that I was asked to do was to lose weight as Dhoni's father is little thinner than me. So I lost about 13-14 kg. I did that for a personal reason also as I wanted to lose weight. Then I met him (Paan Singh Dhoni) and felt like he is as simple and ordinary as my own father. I don't see 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story as a film on cricket. I see it as a film on relationships and an inspirational story.

    ''Cricket is just a part in it. It shows how a small town boy goes through all the odds in life and becomes one of the finest cricketers in the world,'' he said.

    "You can say -- it's a story of an ordinary father whose son becomes extraordinary. This was the best part for me," he added.

    Anupam first came into the limelight with his role in 1984 film Saaransh and went on to star in films like Ram Lakhan, Daddy and 1942: A Love Story. His international credits include Bend It Like Beckham, Bride and Prejudice and Silver Linings Playbook.

    His next Hollywood film is The Headhunter's Calling, for which he travelled to the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival last month.

    Anupam said the response to the film, directed by Mark Williams, was "amazing".

    "While introducing me on stage, my director called me one of the best actors in the world. Whenever I go to a film festival abroad and people say something like that, I feel I am representing my country. I was a proud Indian there,'' he said.
