Is Victory based on M.S. Dhoni's real life success story?

By Bollywood Hungama News Network

After his debut in Love Story 2050, Harman Baweja is all set to make a comeback with his latest Victory. The film, which is being directed by Ajitpal Mangat, is based on cricket and has some real big names from the cricketing world like Brett Lee, Simon Katich, Harbhajan Singh, Sohail Tanvir, Graeme Smith, Chaminda Vaas and Muralitharan making an appearance.

Victory is about a small town boy, who like millions of others, dreams of making it big in the world of cricket and actually does go all the way. The buzz doing the rounds is that the film's story is inspired by the real life success story of India Captain M.S.Dhoni. It is well known fact that Dhoni, who is a household name today, was just another ordinary lad from Jharkhand with dreams in his eyes few years ago.

Bollywood Hungama decided to probe a little more into this and when we got in touch with a reliable source from Mr. Mangat's office, he said, "I cannot comment on this right now. You will have to wait for the right time till we are ready to disclose such information." If sources are to be believed the film also has references to the real life success stories of players like Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag.

We tried getting in touch with Harman too but he was unavailable for comment. One will have to wait and watch if Victory is indeed based on the life M.S. Dhoni.
