In a video shared by Rajasthan Royals on Twitter, Chahal along with Karun Nair and Ravichandran Ashwin narrated their "comeback stories".
He spoke about his narrow escape in 2013 when a drunk Mumbai Indians player, who Chahal chose not to name, dangled him from the balcony.
"My story, some people know about. I have never spoken about this, I never shared this. In 2013, I was with the Mumbai Indians. We had a match in Bengaluru. There was a get together after that.
There was a player who was very drunk, I will not take his name. He was very drunk; he was looking at me and he just called me. He took me outside and he dangled me from the balcony," Chahal told
"My hands were around him. Had I lost my grip, I was on the 15th floor. Suddenly many people who were there came and got the situation under control
I kind of fainted. They gave me water, then I realised how responsible you should be if you go out anywhere.
So, this was one incident where I felt I made a narrow escape. Had there been the slightest of mistake, I would have fallen down," he added.
former India opener Virender Sehwag has also extended support to Chahal. The veteran also asked Chahal to reveal the "drunk" player's identity.
"Important to reveal name of player who as per Chahal did this to him in a drunk state. If true, this cannot be treated as fun, important to know what happened and what action was taken considering the seriousness of this," Sehwag said
