India limited-overs skipper MS Dhoni’s biopic “MS Dhoni: The untold story” is set to hit the theatres on September 30. Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who plays Dhoni in the movie and Dhoni himself, promote the movie while shooting questions at each other. We first see Dhoni ask reel Dhoni a set of questions and then the tables turn as Sushant asks Dhoni a really tough question that the latter ignores, giving a big smile. The movie is directed by Neeraj Pandey, who Dhoni in the past has acknowledged to be a huge fan of. Dhoni is India’s most successful captains, having won all the ICC tournaments.

Sushant is believed to have done a lot of homework ahead of taking up the role. If the trailer of the movie is anything to go by, it shows Dhoni’s struggle right from a young age to become a cricketer. He had to convince his parents and also give up a comfortable job in the railways to become a cricketer. READ: Fans go crazy on Twitter over launch of ‘MS Dhoni: The Album’

Dhoni’s hardwork eventually paid off as he made his international debut in an One-Day International (ODI) against Bangladesh at Chittagong in 2004. He never looked back since. In 2007, he was entrusted to lead India in the inaugural ICC World T20, after many senior players backed out of the tournament. India led the young team to glory, beating Pakistan in the final. He has been India’s captain in T20Is ever since.
