Sushant Singh Rajput practicing for MS Dhoni’s
Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who will be playing the role of Indian cricket team skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni in his biopic, has injured himself while practicing Dhoni’s signature ‘helicopter’ shot.
Sushant Singh Rajput had been learning cricket and watching Dhoni’s old matches to help him get more grasp on his character.
One of Dhoni’s signature shots is the helicopter shot where he flicks his wrists in a circular motion. While working on perfecting the shot, Sushant Singh Rajput injured his ribs and is now out of action for weeks.
According to a report published in Mid-Day, Sushant has fractured his ribs and was out of action for more than three weeks. He is being trained by former Indian wicketkeeper Kiran More for the film.
Sushant also did some net practise alongwith Dhoni, who has also been helping him perfect his body language and mannerisms.
Neeraj Pandey’s ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’ release has been pushed to next year.
