An era that witnessed both triumph and disaster in their greatest heights, ended last night as ‘captain cool’ Mahendra Singh Dhoni put his crown down. His journey to fame continues to inspire many, and the one who brought it alive on silver screen was actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’, a biopic on the cricketer which released in 2016, had Rajput playing the titular role. The film not only earned huge applause from all corners but enriched him as an actor. Last night, after news of Dhoni stepping down as the captain broke, an emotional Sushant took to Twitter to send out a heartfelt message.
“There is no one like you. You’re the reason for millions of smiles. Take a bow my Captain,” he wrote.
