The first look of Sushant Singh Rajput, who plays the role of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in a biopic on the life and times of India’s World Cup winning captain, has finally been revealed.
The actor resembles the young ‘Mahi’ during his early days as cricketer, especially during India’s historic T20 World Cup win in 2007.
Sushant is known to get into the skin of the characters that he portrays on-screen, and the MS Dhoni biopic could be the most challenging role of his career so far. The actor sports a rugged long with long hair. The colour of his cap is the only thing that doesn’t match the dark-blue shaded cap that Indian cricketers wear.
The biopic is directed by Neeraj Pandey who has previously directed films like A Wednesday, Special 26 and the upcoming Akshay Kumar starrer Baby.
Sushant awaits the release of his film ‘PK’ which is scheduled to release in theatres on 19th December.
