Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan's favourite cricketer is none other than Mahendra Singh Dhoni. "He is a Dabangg player," so said Chulbul Pandey on Sunday.
On Star Sports' pre-show Nerolac Cricket Live, Salman spoke about his bond with batsman Kedar Jadhav and how much he admires the 'Dabangg' style of the former India captain Dhoni.
"I personally know Kedar Jadhav...Also, my favourite cricketer is MS Dhoni. He is a Dabangg player," Salman said.
Salman was accompanied by his co-star Kiccha Sudeep, who is playing the villain in the third instalment of the Dabangg series. "My favourite player is the one who plays well on that day. But what we see as fans are the respect each player has towards each other," Sudeep said.
"We can visibly see the players stand and cheer for the achievements of their teammates - with such a positive attitude, we can freely have our favourites. My all-time favourite has to be Anil Kumble sir, and I also like Rohit Sharma," Sudeep added.
