Actor Sushant Singh Rajput is all set to play Mahendra Singh Dhoni in an official biopic on the World Cup-winning Indian captain

From page B He is one of India's mostloved cricketers, with millions aping his every move " from his constantly changing hairstyles to his famous helicopter shot. And now, World Cup-winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is set to have a brush with Bollywood as an official biopic on his life is in the pipeline. We've learnt that Sushant Singh Rajput is going to don the captain's jersey in the film that is being helmed by Neeraj Pandey (he directed A Wednesday, 2008).

MS Dhoni Sushant Singh Rajput

"Dhoni has already given his go ahead to the film. Even as Sushant is shooting for Dibakar's (Banerjee) film, he is studying Dhoni's mannerisms as much as possible through his interviews and match clippings. In fact, he has also visited Ranchi (Dhoni's hometown) and interacted with the locals as part of his preparation," says an insider close to the production.

Sushant and Dhoni are also believed to have met at a Bandra fivestar hotel. "We don't know the reason, but we had seen the two of

them together right before Dhoni left for the New Zealand series," says a member of the hotel's staff.

While the biopic is expected to cover Dhoni's journey " from a small-town boy to a global phenomenon " a part of it will also focus on his wife Sakshi. "They are considering Deepika Padukone or Shraddha Kapoor to play Sakshi," adds the insider.

The yet-untitled film is likely to kick off in early 2015. "He has to transform his body before filming. Since he also has to wrap up Dibakar's and Shekhar Kapur's films, which require different physiques, it'll take some time for the biopic to get started," adds the insider. Apparently, it will be made on a budget of around 95 crore and shot in Jharkhand, Durban in South Africa, and London, among other locations.

Despite repeated attempts, neither Sushant nor Neeraj could be reached for comment.

Woah, this sounds awesome!  I think it's a good decision by the casting department, because Sushant has already trained in cricket at a pretty high level of intensity for KPC.

I love it when his projects kind of come out of the blue, like it did with DBB.  At least I haven't read much about this biopic before, and so reading this news makes me feel excited rather than jaded (as one would feel when finally reading the casting for a film like Shuddhi or Bajirao Mastani).  Also, it seems like this is not a YRF production, so yay for branching out.

Thank you for the article, Tanmi!
