Sushant Singh Rajput immotalised MS Dhoni, and that's saying something considering Dhoni is already immortal, in ways more than one.
Sushant played him in his biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story when Mahi was still playing and one of the most relevant figures in the country.
As I see the love pouring for M.S Dhoni, all I can think of is Sush's commitment towards his portrayal of the cricketer. He gave his all as he knew the importance of his role in the biopic & to top it off, his performance was astounding! Love the reel Dhoni #GlobalPrayersForSSR pic.twitter.com/ZfHkWPcgeA— Kay💥 (@Kay72836381) August 15, 2020
The responsibility was huge and Sushant carried it out with full dedication and attention to details. Sometimes, it was almost surreal.
Which reminds us of the 2011 World Cup final scene from the movie, where he got the nuances...perfectly. That's the only word to use here.
A side-by-side comparison of the scene and what actually happened in those 5 seconds before Dhoni won India the World Cup show you the same.
From fixing the helmet, to playing the shot. From looking at the ball as it flew across the field, to hugging Yuvraj. Everything is: Exactly. The. Same.
