Sushant Singh Rajput senses the responsibility and pride of donning Dhoni's iconic blue colours while preparing for the official bio-pic on the most successful Indian cricket captain that releases on October 22, 2015. Sushant Singh Rajput is really getting into the skin of the character for his role as the legendary cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni in Neeraj Pandey's bio-pic titled "M.S.Dhoni: The Untold Story". Sushant has been working very hard for more than 4 months now, practicing to play and keep the ball like our Captain Cool. Sushant knows the challenges and huge opportunity the role throws at him, as the hugely popular Captain is still playing and followed by the whole nation. Sushant knows that he has to train intensely hard to pull off the role of Dhoni convincingly.
Right from the announcement of the project, the film has gained massive appeal not only in India but also in the other cricket playing nations of the world, thanks to the popularity of the Indian Captain and his victories.
"M.S.Dhoni: The Untold Story" delves into the workings of one of the finest minds of modern cricket. It traces his incredible, inspirational rise from humble beginnings in Ranchi to an icon of modern India. While the story plays out upon an epic canvas of global cricket, director Neeraj Pandey is clear he's trying to uncover the more personal and human story behind the icon - the untold story filled with humour, romance, tragedy and triumph.
The film is being co-produced by Fox Star Studios & Inspired Entertainment. Inspired entertainment is an associate company of Rhiti Sports, that has exclusive rights of M S Dhoni's story. Fox Star Studios, with their international infrastructure will be taking this bio-pic of Mahendra Singh Dhoni beyond the national boundaries of India.
