Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who portrays Indian ODI captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni in his upcoming biopic “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story”, says playing the cricketer was special for him.
Dhoni has joined Sushant for Kingfisher Premium’s “Original Social Network” campaign. The two are seen together in a TV commercial for the same.
“It was great to share screen space with Dhoni in my latest ad for Kingfisher. It’s a first for any brand to have us both together in an advertisement,” Sushant said in a statement.
“While in the movie I play him, which was really special for me as an actor, we also came together to celebrate this very special moment when we were shooting for the commercial,” he added.
The commercial celebrates success, friendship and the real spirit of “good times”.
“This is my fourth TV commercial with Kingfisher, which reinforces the positioning of Kingfisher as the ‘Original Social Network’. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our camaraderie than to come together on-screen with the legend,” Sushant said.
Directed by Neeraj Pandey, “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story” is slated to release on September 30.
When BL met the actor and asked him from where does he get the care a damn attitude to deal with all this, his answer was pretty strange. Sushant said, “I am a very selfish actor, I do everything for myself, from choosing a script or working in it. Just before release of the film, I think about the audience for the first time coz we are selling the film saying that it’s a good film, so it has to be a better film. If there is somebody who looks at him and I can a bring a smile on their face, I will be happy and if they are envious or negative about me, it’s their problem and not mine”.
