Gautam Gambhir is struggling to make a comeback to the Indian cricket team while he continues to excel in first-class cricket and IPL.
Gambhir and MS Dhoni may not be the best of friends off the field but they do share a warm camaraderie. With just 10 days to go for the release of Dhoni’s biopic,’ MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’, Gambhir shared a controversial tweet which got backfired on him.

It does not matter which field a person belongs to, anyone whose story can inspire people, deserves a biopic. https://t.co/MHEp1IhAhk

As hateful tweets didn’t stop, it urged Gambhir to tweet again to clarify his intention:
My detractors got it wrong. Am not against ANY ONE cricketer’s biopic, am against d very concept which includes a biopic on my life.
