Along with an illustrious career in niche publications like The Times of India, Maharashtra Herald, Outlook, & Hindustan Times, Biswadeep has authored four biographies of Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan, and two children’s book.
His latest biography MSD : The Man, The Leader has been the talk of the town these days for the obvious reason that it’s the biography is the man of the moment, the Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
The most inspirational story in Indian cricket is that of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Generations will remember Dhoni for hitting the dramatic winning six for India in the finals of the World Cup 2011 against Sri Lanka, but it is the hope he has given to millions of struggling cricketers across this vast nation that is his true legacy. Born in the lap of poverty and having battled against unimaginable adversities, Dhoni s phenomenal rise from being a bus conductor s son to captain of Team India is now a case study in B-schools. With grit, guts and matchless self-belief, Dhoni led India to a Twenty20 World Cup and an ICC Cricket World Cup triumph, as well as the number one position in all three versions of the game. Although he s had his fair share of disappointments, for MSD failure has been yet another motivation to work hard and succeed.
