Sushant Singh Rajput, who is playing the role of Indian ODI and T20 captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni in his upcoming biopic ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’, says playing the cricketer was special for him.
Dhoni has joined Sushant for Kingfisher Premium’s ‘Original Social Network’ campaign. The two are seen together in a TV commercial, for which they shot together recently.
“It was great to share screen space with Dhoni in my latest ad for Kingfisher. It’s a first for any brand to have us both together in an advertisement,” Sushant said in a statement.
“While in the movie I play him, which was really special for me as an actor, we also came together to celebrate this very special moment when we were shooting for the commercial,” he added.
Directed by Neeraj Pandey, ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’ is releasing on September 30th. Apart from Sushant, the film stars Anupam Kher, Disha Patani, Bhumika Chawla and Kiara Advani.
