Not many know that Sushant Singh Ra­jput has been qui­etly work­ing for his next — a biopic on In­dian ODI and T20 cricket cap­tain, MS Dhoni.

Although Sushant has al­ready had a few meet­ings with the ‘real’ Dhoni, we have learnt that the ac­tor doesn’t want to leave any­thing to chance, and that’s why when he re­cently trav­elled to Dhoni’s home­town Ranchi, he was very ea­ger to meet the crick­eter’s close friends from col­lege as well as school to get and in­sight into Dhoni ‘the per­son’ be­sides Dhoni ‘the crick­eter.’

“Sushant knows that he can get a fan­tas­tic and un­beat­able in­sight into Dhoni’s life through peo­ple who have been with him since child­hood. So dur­ing his Ranchi visit, he in­sisted on spend­ing some time with Dhoni’s long-time friends as well as the coach and of course fam­ily mem­bers,” says an in­sider.

Also, Sushant has been train­ing hard with for­mer In­dian wick­et­keeper Ki­ran More for a year now. “In fact, Sushant has been train­ing so hard — in wicket-keep­ing as well as bat­ting — with More sir that his close friends jok­ingly ask him to be­come a part-time crick­eter now,” adds the in­sider.

So im­pressed are some fans by this ded­i­ca­tion that they made a col­lage of his pic­tures with Dhoni’s (above) in var­i­ous moods, show­ing how sim­i­lar they now look af­ter Sushant’s at­tempt to ac­quire the crick­eter’s style, too. De­spite re­peated at­tempts, Sushant couldn’t be reached for com­ment.
