When MS Dhoni comes on screen, you expect him to walk confidently to the crease as a manic crowd chants his name in the background. In the first teaser of MS Dhoni – The Untold Story, what he says instead is: “Mahendra Singh Dhoni Ticket Collector South Eastern Railway reporting for duty sir.”

As Sushant Singh Rajput revealed the first teaser of the Dhoni biopic on Tuesday, he managed to pass that toughest test for an actor – he has melded into the character and you actually saw Mahi, the man and not Sushant, the actor. The teaser, also, is just brilliant.

As the title says, this is MS Dhoni’s untold story, the years of hard work which went into making him an overnight success. As Sushant gets instructions as a TC on his first day of work, we see the same iron glint in his eyes and the confident walk that has become the Indian captain’s prerogative on field.

Later in the 48-second teaser, a pensive Sushant is then seen on a railway platform with chants of Dhoni after he scores a six to help India lift the world cup. The teaser effortlessly shows two sides of a man who is among the biggest sports success stories of India today.

Arun Pandey’s film is expected to shed light on Dhoni’s life, since not much is known about him before he shot to international stardom. Rajput trained with former Indian wicketkeeper Kiran More for a year to get the right looks, and even mannerisms, for his role in the biopic.

Produced by Fox Star Studios and Inspired Entertainment, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, has been shot extensively in Ranchi, and it also features veteran actor Anupam Kher and Kiara Advani in the lead roles. Kiara plays Dhoni’s wife Sakshi.
