Mumbai: Actor Sushant Singh Rajput ,who is all set to portray the ‘Captain Cool’ on screen says that he didn’t pretend to be Dhoni. Instead he actually felt the character while filming the biopic.
“It was not tough (to play Dhoni in film) because of the expectations of the audience. We as actors have to convince ourselves that we are the characters. I had strong visual reference of him, so it was a difficult task for me,” Sushant addressed the media.
For him , the audience’s judgement is the final call. He makes every move, thinking about their response. He completely immersed himself taking 11 months to get into the skin into the character.
Talking about Dhoni’s trademark helicopter shot in the 2011 World Cup finals, he mentioned that how the shot left him in excruciating fracture pain. But he eventually made it in a successful attempt.
‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’ also stars Anupam Kher and Kiara Advani and is scheduled to release on 30 September 2016.
