India's premier off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin says he wished he was part of recently released Tamil sports drama "Chennai 28 II", a successful sequel to 2007 Tamil film "Chennai 600028".
He said the film put his life on rewind mode.
A story about friendship set against the backdrop of gully cricket, both the parts were directed by Venkat Prabhu.
"What a wonderful movie 'Chennai 28 II'. Completely put my life on rewind mode. Genuinely felt I could have been a part of it," Ashwin, who was recently named the International Cricket Council (ICC) Player of the Year, wrote on his Twitter page on Tuesday.
