When the actor visited Ranchi, Jharkhand, and met Dhoni’s father Pan Singh, the two had a very long interaction about the cricketer and his life.
At that time, Sushant showed Dhoni’s father many videos of the homework he had done to play the role of Dhoni. All this work that Sushant had put in, even before the formal training for the biopic had started, helped win Pan Singh’s heart.

Dhoni’s father is said to have been pretty impressed with the honesty of Sushant and the amount of energy and work he had devoted to the project. That’s when Singh was convinced that Sushant is the best choice to play his son’s role in the film.
Sushant said, “It gives me a different high when I hear this from people. Playing MS Dhoni is a big responsibility for me, and if people around him feel like that, then it is the biggest compliment I can ever receive.”
MS Dhoni The Untold Story stars Kiara Advani, Disha Patani and Anupam Kher in pivotal roles. Tere Naam actor Bhoomika Chawla is making a big-screen comeback after nearly a decade with this film.
