Uthappa was quoted as saying in ‘My Time My Hero’ by Jio Cinema, “His simplicity is something that has always been there and it is something that has not changed. He is as simple today as I was when I first met him. Dhoni is the simplest person in the world.” 

Uthappa met Dhoni in 2003 –

The former India batsman shared the story of meeting Dhoni for the first time in 2003. Uthappa said, “We always used to eat together. We had a group, Suresh Raina, Irfan Pathan, RP Singh, Piyush Chawla, Munaf Patel, MS and me. We used to have dal makhani, butter chicken, jeera aloo, gobhi and rotis.” but when it came to food, MS was a stickler to the rules. He used to eat butter chicken, but without chicken, only with gravy! When he had chicken, he didn’t eat rotis. When it came to food, he is very strange.

Dhoni takes the responsibility of the match –

Dhoni has had phenomenal success as a captain for both India and CSK and Uthappa explains the reason why. Robin said, “He is a smart driving captain. Known for his instincts, that’s why he has been such a successful captain. He takes responsibility for every result, whether it is a win or a loss.” 

Uthappa also talked about other qualities of Dhoni and shared the first conversation he had with Dhoni after the IPL auction a few years back. “MS is a very open minded person. He doesn’t hesitate to speak the truth, even if it hurts you.”

Dhoni is very simple –

Uthappa further said, “I remember when CSK signed me in the auction, he called me and said, ‘I am not sure if you will get a chance to play, because the season is far away and I haven’t heard about it. Have thought. Till now, I had enjoyed 13 successful years in IPL. Still, he told me in front of me what to do, I still appreciate it very much.’
