Chennai: On a high after becoming father for the second time and having won ICC Test Cricketer of the Year and ICC Cricketer of the Year, R Ashwin expressed that he would have liked to be a part of the film.

The Indian off-spinner, who scalped 72 wickets in Tests and scored 612 runs in 2016, appreciated filmmaker Venkat Prabhu’s Chennai-28 II.

 

Chennai-28 II is a movie about youngsters who were part of gully cricket team who meet at reunion after marriage. It is the sequel to the movie, Chennai-28 which was also about the gully cricket team.

Both the movies were directed by Venkat Prabhu and featured actors Jai, Shiva, Premji, Nitin Sathya, Vijayalakshmi amidst others.

While the world number one all-rounder and bowler in Tests has been enjoying a great run on and off the field, he was targeted after he did not name MS Dhoni in his thank-you speech after winning two of the prestigious ICC awards.

Ashwin had thanked his wife, family, Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli, coach Anil Kumble and the members of the support staff.

However, him not naming Dhoni, with whom he played at the Chennai Super Kings and who captains India’s limited-overs sides, even once did not go down too well with some of the Dhoni supporters.
