“Dhoni finishes off in style. A magnificent strike into the crowd. India lifts the World Cup after 28 years. The party starts in the dressing room and it’s been the Indian captain who has been absolutely magnificent in the night of the final.” The Indian fans relived these epic words from Ravi Shastri twice. Once on April 2, 2011, when India actually won the World Cup and then again in MS Dhoni’s biopic which was released on September 30, 2016.

Sushant Singh Rajput was the perfect choice to enact the India skipper for the movie who left no stone unturned in his preparations. He used to spend a lot of time with the man himself during the shoot to make sure he doesn’t let anyone down. MS Dhoni and Sushant were close to each other thanks to the former’s biopic and the relation stayed the same way forever.

Mahi is also very morose: Arun Pandey

No wonder Dhoni was extremely sad after hearing about Sushant Singh Rajput on Sunday. The actor allegedly committed suicide at his residence and soon after the news broke out, cricketing fraternity, along with others, paid condolences to his friends and family. Bollywood has now lost three gems in around one and a half month. Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor passed away in April.

MS Dhoni’s business manager Arun Pandey told that the former Indian captain was in utter disbelief after hearing the news, “We can’t even believe what has happened. I am not in a position to express my grief. Mahi is also very morose. Such a tragic incident,” Arun Pandey told ABP Ananda.

He added, “Sushant was only 34 and a prosperous career was waiting for him, I have no doubt about that. There are ups and downs in everyone’s life. Sushant used to practice under the watchful eyes of former cricketer Kiran More who taught him how to keep wickets, which was very essential to play the role of Mahi. I still remember that Sushant had a bad side strain during practice and even there was a crack in his backbone. But he was confident, worked hard in rehabilitation and recovered within a week. Even Mahi was impressed to see his dedication to work.”
