The MS Dhoni Reaction- MS Dhoni’s 2011 World Cup-winning six is etched deep in the minds of every Indian cricket fans. The fans lived the moment twice. The first, on April 2, 2011, when India won the World Cup. Then the fans got to enjoy the moment the second time after the release of MS Dhoni’s biopic, ‘MS Dhoni- The Untold Story’ on September 30, 2016.
Sushant Singh Rajput was the ideal man to act in the role of MS Dhoni in his biopic. He did every bit of his preparations for doing justice to the role and he played it incredibly well. Sushant even used to spend a lot of time with MS Dhoni himself during the shoot, so that he lives the character perfectly well. Hence, both of them developed a very good relationship during the biopic and it continued to remain the same all throughout the years.
Sushant committed suicide inside his residence in Bandra on Sunday. The news spread like a wildfire and both the cricket fraternity as well as the Bollywood expressed their grief on his demise. MS Dhoni is very sad hearing the news of his demise. Bollywood lost three of its most able actors in a span of one and a half months. Rishi Kapoor and Irfan Khan passed away in April and now Sushant Singh Rajput.
His business manager said that the CSK skipper had broken down hearing the news of Sushant’s death
MS Dhoni’s business manager Arun Pandey told that Dhoni could not believe after hearing the news of Sushant’s sudden death. He broke down on hearing the news. “We can not 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 called Sushant a very good actor and said that a prosperous career was waiting for him. During the shoot of Dhoni’s biopic, Sushant was taking the wicketkeeping training from Kiran More. He even had a side strain during practice and eventually a crack in the backbone. However, he did not give up and worked hard in rehabilitation and made his recovery within a week. Arun said that even Dhoni was impressed to see his dedication to work.
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.”

Anyone who saw the press conference of MS Dhoni- The Untold Story, saw the bonding between the World Cup-winning captain and the Bollywood star. They have a special chemistry that was quite clear. Their friendship looked very real. Due to this, it was a real shock when Dhoni heard this news.
Most of the film fraternity and the fans were as stunned as they could be. So imagine what MS Dhoni must have gone through. The former Indian skipper did not even come out and comment on the matter. He was shell-shocked by the news, based on the information conveyed.
It will take everyone some time to recover from this news. Rest In Peace, Sushant Singh Rajput.
