The much-awaited biopic on Indian ODI cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni hits theatres on Friday.

Before you decide to plan your weekend movie, the producers have made one last attempt to woo audience to the theatres. They have released a training video that showcases all the hard work spanning 150 days that went into the transformation of Sushant Singh Rajput into MS Dhoni for the film’s lead role.

“On the first day, by the end I got that helicopter shot. After the shot I realised I was in pain, I had got hairline fracture so I was on a two-week leave. Now I can do the helicopter shot nicely,” he had earlier said.

Former Indian wicketkeeper Kiran More coached Sushant for the biopic while he watched videos to incorporate Dhoni’s body language and style to perfect his act.
