Mumbai: Cricketer Irfan Pathan is glad that Bollywood is making biopics on sports personalities. Pathan also wished luck to Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who plays the lead role in “M S Dhoni: The Untold Story”. “There are lots of good biopics being made on sports personalities like Milkha Singhji, Mary Kom. Now a biopic on M S Dhoni is being made. I would like to wish the team good luck, all the best to Sushant (actor Sushant Singh Rajput). It would be an interesting film. I am looking forward to it,” Irfan told PTI in an interview here.

The biopic, directed by Neeraj Pandey, depicts the life of cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The 30-year-old pacer thinks sportsmen lead a difficult life. “I feel sportsmen see a lot of failure. If your success rate is 20 per cent then you are a legend as the remaining per cent comes from struggle. To sustain is difficult,” he said.

“I have made a comeback two-three times and I know how difficult it is. You undergo injuries. That is real life struggle. I think “never say die” attitude comes from sportsmen,” he added.
