Indian T-20 captain M.S. Dhoni says he was surprised to see actor Sushant Singh Rajput portray him keeping in mind the minute details, in upcoming biopic “M S Dhoni: The Untold Story”.
“He (Sushant) has worked very hard. He was practicing everyday for more than nine months. He was batting everyday for over three hours when it comes to portraying the (cricket) shots,” Dhoni said in a statement.
Beside cricket training, the 30-year-old actor had to emote the ‘captain cool’ (as Dhoni is fondly called) by understanding his mindset when his team won or lost a match.
“Also the way I walk, the way I talk, he has copied almost everything. In fact I was amazed to see him do all these things,” he adds.
The trailer of M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, a biopic on the Indian captain, has led to a flurry of appreciation calls and messages for Sushant.
Dhoni has said that when he met Rajput for the first time to discuss the role he had asked too many questions about the cricketer driving him to the point to say ‘enough of it now’.
Also starring Kiara Advani and Anupam Kher the film is scheduled for September 30 release. – CINEWS
