New Delhi: We have good news for all the Sushant Singh Rajput fans out there. The sequel to the 2016 hit film M S Dhoni: The Untold Story is on the cards and Sushant Singh Rajput will reprise his role in the film. The second installment will focus on Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s life after the 2011 world cup victory and it will also document different facets of his personal life. It has been observed by many fans that Dhoni after the 2011 World Cup has been too slow in scoring and has been playing defensive cricket. His die-hard fans believe that Dhoni has matured over the years and so he takes time in building his innings. Sushant Singh has started practicing defensive shots. Defending full tosses is a difficult art and it requires great dedication. Sushant wants to play it real, the way Dhoni does it with calm and ease.


Post-2011, MSD has been taking up the role of sheet anchor and has taken the unnecessary burden on his shoulders. Sushant wants to bring this aspect to the new biopic. The new biopic will also focus on the careers of Parthiv Patel, Saha, Dinesh Karthik and Rishab Pant, which were destroyed by Dhoni’s presence in the team. The biopic will also show how Pune owners were against Dhoni’s slow captaincy and had to replace him with Steve Smith and also the CSK triumph in 2018 after a gap of 2 years in IPL.

Sushant is also hearing a lot of Stump mic recordings as post-2011 Dhoni has been heard a lot behind the stumps and less in press conferences. For the next 30 days, Sushant will only practice defending full tosses and will focus on other aspects afterward.
