The kind of impact which Sushant Singh Rajput left with his acting in MS Dhoni: The Untold Story was second to none. The actor’s shared a special kind of bond with cricket as he had also portrayed the role of an ex-district level cricketer.
However, Sushant’s untimely death has left a huge void that will never be filled. 34-year-old Sushant, on Sunday, committed suicide at his Bandra residence while battling against depression.
Condolence messages and tributes started coming in no time after Sushant’s demise. Pictures of Sushant portraying MS Dhoni‘s role surfaced all over the internet. Many fans reminisced the actor’s stellar performance in the biopic as they felt no other person could’ve pulled off that role with such ease.
Arun Pandey, a close friend and business manager of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni, who also co-produced MS Dhoni’s biopic has revealed that there was a possibility of the film’s sequel. However, after Sushant’s demise, the film sequel won’t be happening now.
Sushant really perfected Dhoni’s helicopter shot: Arun Pandey
“A sequel has been long crossing his mind and there were thinking of coming up with something at some point of time but given what happened today, everything is now meaningless,” said Pandey as quoted by ABP news.
“I am absolutely shocked. I am at a total loss of words. He was a very cheerful person and we spent almost 100 days at a stretch together and during the time we became very close,” he added.
Pandey also reminisced that Sushant was a very humble guy and he really put in a lot of hard work while preparing to play Dhoni’s role. Sushant also perfected Dhoni’s trademark ‘helicopter shot’ for the role.
“Deep within he was a child, his exuberance and little things he liked to do, we had a lot of fun on the sets. Also, he really put in a lot of hard work, he wanted to make sure he looked the part, not just his outside appearance but also his mannerisms and of course his cricketing shots. Everyone remembers the video where he perfected the helicopter shot,” recalled Pandey.
