Actor Sushant Singh Rajput says grabbing an opportunity to play Indian cricket icon Mahendra Singh Dhoni on screen was exciting, more so because he has been a huge fan of the star cricketer.

The trailer of M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, a biopic on the Indian captain, has led to a flurry of appreciation calls and messages for Sushant.

Recounting an incident when he met Dhoni as a fanboy, Sushant said in a statement: “Back in 2006 or 2007, my family and I had reached out to Dhoni and clicked a picture with him.”

“He is the one person for whom I have enormous respect and this opportunity was very exciting.”

Naturally, then, Sushant went out of his way to give his best shot to “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story”, directed by Neeraj Pandey.

He says: “Honestly, in your career, there are films you do with full honesty and end up being a good actor but there are very few films that you do and end up being a good human being.”

The film’s trailer has garnered over 10 million views.

Produced by Arun Pandey and Fox Star studios, the film which is one of the most anticipated films of the year and will release on September 30.

“More than skill, it is difficult to understand a person. The hardest part was to understand why he is the way he is. The way he is calm from outside but there are so many things going inside his head, so, what is his thought process like? And his mindset…,” the actor told reporters in Mumbai previously.\
