robin uthappa reveals ms dhoni weird habit eats butter chicken without chicken
Uthappa has revealed about Dhoni’s eating habits. Uthappa, who played for CSK, said, ‘We always used to eat together. We had a group – Suresh Raina, Irfan Pathan, RP Singh, Piyush Chawla, Munaf, MS and myself. We used to order dal makhani, butter chicken, jeera aloo, gobhi and rotis. But when it comes to food, MS was a very strict person. He used to eat butter chicken but without the chicken, only with gravy! When he used to eat chicken, he did not eat rotis. He is very strange when it comes to food.
Uthappa also talked about other qualities of Dhoni and shared the first conversation he had with Dhoni after the IPL auction a few years ago. MS is a very open person. He doesn’t hesitate to speak the truth, even if it hurts you. 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 as the season is far away and I haven’t thought about it’.
Till now, I had enjoyed 13 successful years in IPL. Still, he told me in front of me what he had to do. I still appreciate it very much. Talking about his time at CSK in Dhoni’s presence, Uthappa said, ‘In the first season, I saw everyone in the team calling him Mahi bhai. I went up to him and asked if I should also call him Mahi Bhai. He dismissed it saying, call it whatever you want, it doesn’t matter.’
