When reel-life superhero met his role model! That’s the best way to describe Malayalam star Tovino Thomas’ chance meeting with former India captain and legendary cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni recently.

The duo reportedly met each other at the Taj Bekal Resort in Kasaragode. The Minnal Murali star took to his social networking page to share a photo with Dhoni, while also describing how their meeting went.

Calling this time spent together “cool”, Tovino said that Dhoni had that that very same persona that people have seen him in while he was playing cricket for India as well as the Indian Premier League, in which he leads Chennai Super Kings. “Cool, composed and spontaneous brilliance is the man himself in person,” Tovino wrote.

The Malayalam star, who is shooting Jithin Lal’s Ajayante Randam Moshanam in Kasaragode, said they had “great conversations”. “There was this typical ease in which he would say the most thoughtful things,” he said, adding that he was fortunate for the opportunity to meet and spend time with the cricketer, whom he had described as “a great role model for all”.

Meanwhile, Tovino, himself, has been pulling off some great feats in Malayalam. The actor, who has been going from strength to strength, had one of his biggest hits last year – Thallumaala, which was praised by many including Vikram director Lokesh Kanagaraj.

Tovino is next gearing up for the release of Neelavelicham, which will mark his fourth collaboration with director Aashiq Abu after Mayaanadhi, Virus and Naradhan. The actor has also completed shooting Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s Vazhakku, which premiered at last year’s IFFK. He has shot for Dr Biju’s surrealistic film Adrishya Jalakangal, which also has Nimisha Sajayan and Indrans in pivotal roles. The actor had lost a lot of weight to essay the character, which he says he will forever cherish.

His current film Ajayante Randam Moshanam has him essaying triple role and also has Kriti Shetty, Aishwarya Rajesh and Surabhi Lakshmi as part of the cast.
