MUMBAI: Former India captain MS Dhoni was shattered and heartbroken to hear the demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. This was after the 34-year-old actor was found dead at his Mumbai residence.
Rajput had essayed the role of former Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the 2016 film “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story.”
After being selected for the role, Rajput was trained by none other than former Indian wicketkeeper Kiran More and spent almost 9 months with More to master the mannerisms of Dhoni on the field.
Such was his dedication towards his art that despite being hit on his hands many times while training, he was undeterred and even went on to master Dhoni’s trademark helicopter shot. His montage of training days for the role is certainly a must-watch.
