The actor is set emulate our Indian cricket captain in his next...
Sushant Singh Rajput and Mahendra Singh Dhoni launched the official trailer of a while back and we have to say we were blown away. The film is based on the journey of our cricket captain from a Train Ticket Examiner (TTE) to the World's best captain. The duo along with their producers Fox Star India and Arun Pandey launched the trailer in 3 cities over two days - Jalandhar, Delhi and finally Mumbai. However, it was in Mumbai where the most fun interaction took place. The media spoke with MSD and Sushant for m0re than an hour, talking about the film, Mahi's cricketing days and much more. While Dhoni made us laugh a lot, it was Sushant who made quite a few interesting statements that told a lot about his mindset as a person. Here are a few things that he told at the trailer launch: M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story
# On the pressure to play Dhoni - I didn't find it difficult. I had a lot of fun. It took me a few months to learn everything, but I learnt so much that on a few days I used to feel I am the character ( Dhoni). We started with that thought and then, how Sir (Neeraj Pandey) guided me, I followed. So, it was more excitement than pressure. # On learning MSD's trademark helicopter shot - I invested a lot of time in playing perfect shots like he does. It took me 2 to 2 and a half months to learn the helicopter shot, but I didn't give up.
# On Shobhaa Dee's tweet about the performance of Indian athletes at the Rio Olympics - People have a strong opinion just because they want to come across as somebody who knows everything.
# On heartbreak - Heartbreak toh heart main tha aur mindset toh sahi tha (The heartbreak happened in the heart, but the mindset was fine). # Respect for cricketers - I was asked to do wicket keeping on the 2nd or 3rd day of the shoot. I always thought it was a very easy and good job to catch the ball. But within 10 seconds I couldn't squat in that position. It's such a tough job. I now have an immense respect for all the cricketers.
