Sushant Singh Rajput and Mahendra Singh Dhoni
Be it his batting style, his daredevil attitude or his changing hairstyle, the captain of the Indian national cricket team is always in the news. Having inspired million of youngsters, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is also considered as one of the most efficient captains of the Indian cricket team. Hence, it does not come as a surprise that an official biopic on his life is in the offing.
A Hindustan Times report says that actor Sushant Singh Rajput will most likely play MS Dhoni in the film which is being helmed by Neeraj Pandey.
Quoting a source, a report further says that the cricketer has already given his approval for the film. The actor, who is very keen to don Dhoni's jersey, is studying Dhoni's mannerism and other aspects of his personality by watching match clippings and interviews. Sushant is preparing himself for the role and hence visited Dhoni's hometown Ranchi to talk to people associated with the cricketer to know more about him.
Rumours also suggest that Sushant even met Dhoni in Mumbai before the cricketer left for the New Zealand series.
The biopic will be a true account on Dhoni's life and will trace his journey from a small-town boy to the captain of the Indian cricket team. The movie will also show instances from his personal life too and a part of it will focus on his wife Sakshi. Most probably Deepika Padukone or Shraddha Kapoor will play Sakshi.
Further to reports, the movie will go on floors in early 2015 and Sushant will have to work on his physique before that. The report adds that the movie will be made in a budget of approximately 95 crore and will be shot in India as well as abroad.
