Celebrated sports and film personalities such as Harsha Bhogle, Ravichandran Ashwin, Samantha Prabhu, Anupam Kher also engaged with Unacademy in response to the film, tweeting their own take on Perseverance from breaking barriers.
Actor Samantha Ruth Prabhu said, “The film portrays the feeling of breaking through all barriers with such perfection that I want to keep watching it on loop.”
Speaking about the film, Dhoni said, “Both in life and in cricket, I have always believed in two things, i.e to focus on breaking through the next immediate barrier and continue to learn to be battle ready. The film reflects on how Unacademy looks at Learning as a continuous process and prepares you for your next challenge ahead and I am delighted to be associated with Unacademy.
