Of injuries, hardships and more: Sushant Singh trained for 150 days for MS Dhoni
Sushant Singh even injured himself during the preparation for MS Dhoni The Untold Story.
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.
Sushant even injured his ankle while trying the helicopter shot on the first day.
“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.
MS Dhoni - The Untold Story is directed by Neeraj Pandey and produced by Fox Star Studios and Inspired Entertainment. The film features Sushant Singh Rajput in the leading role as Dhoni, Kiara Advani as Sakshi Dhoni, Disha Patani and Anupam Kher.
