We already broke the news to you that Vignesh Shivan has directed legendary cricketing superstar Thala M.S. Dhoni for Chennai Super Kings promotional video. He shared his joy of meeting his idol up close and front calling it a Life if Beautiful moment and thanked the Universe for making it happen.

In his latest post Wikki as he is fondly called by his friends and fans shared an amazing photo of his mother Meena Kumari with Dhoni and revealed the story behind it. He wrote "My favourite Story of myself ! So many years back … my mom used to be incharge of the security for the IPL cricket players … she being the inspector of police , she had the access to all places … I’ve seen her talk in Tamil to Dwayne Bravo once ! Lol... I used to ask her and somehow stand in one corner of Park Sheraton hotel to get a glimpse of my Idol :) MSD !

The 'Thaana Serndha Koottam' helmer added "I’ve followed him all my life … always been an ardent fan and a far away student ! There are times when I have handled situations during shooting … during failures … during success or many other situations .. I would jus imagine how Msd will react to such a situation… and I would do the same ! While working with a team of 100 members everyday ! You need leadership skills and I’ve always followed my Idol ! :)".

Vignesh further went on "Coming back to the mom story …I used to stand for long hours and when he walks and gets into the house I’ve always wished why can’t the bus be parked somewhere longer ! One day my mom had a chance to get a pic with MS Dhoni … but I wasn’t able to !!! Even she couldn’t help me get one even though she had access … ! So it’s always been a dream for me to meet him … take a pic atleast once in my lifetime ! Then comes life … the work we do …. And the blessings and prayers of our loved ones ! Through an angel ?? certain Good things happened & eventually??whatever I manifested was happening behind me only to get me an opportunity to direct a small video for CSK with my Icon ! :)))".

The affable filmmaker gushed "I said “action” 36 times ! Like a little boy counting with his fingers …every time I said action & Thanked God and the universe for making me direct the video :) lucky me And during a short break … I showed him the picture that my mom took :) that’s the first pic I’ve posted :) And then later brought my mom and made her meet him :) In my shooting My set :) For close to 10 mins atleast :)
Manifestation , perseverance definitely works ! Surreal i felt then :) This humble man ! Was too sweeet ! Too down to earth and very endearing making every second around him count ! :) One of the major dreams came true :) Special thanks to the blessed angels in my life ! :)".

More good news from Wikky is that his much expected new romantic comedy 'Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kadhal' has been acquired by Red Giant movies and will hit the screens worldwide on April 28th. The film has the charismatic trio Vijay Sethupathi, Samantha and Nayanthara along with Redin Kingsley and Ilaya Thilagam Prabhu.
