Actor Sushant Singh Rajput says he did not pretend to be Dhoni, but actually felt like the cricketer while essaying the title role in the upcoming biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.
For Sushant, the role of Dhoni was not tough, but he found it difficult to get his mannerisms right.
“It was not tough (to play Dhoni in film) because of the expectations of the audience. We as actors have to convince ourselves that we are the characters. I had strong visual reference of him, so it was a difficult task for me,” Sushant told reporters here at an event.
“I immersed into the film completely. When I was shooting for the film on day one, I did not pretend to be Dhoni, I was Dhoni,” he said.
