Just yesterday, we told you that Sushant Singh Rajput‘s official spokesperson set the record straight, assuring everyone that the actor had NOT walked out of Shekhar Kapur‘s Paani, and is still very much in the film. Now, today, there’s another bit of exciting news from the actor’s front! He is playing the role of cricketer MS Dhoni in a biopic of the same name, and the first look of this film is now out! Have a look and let us know what you think:

The film is being directed by Neeraj Pandey – of A Wednesday and Special 24 fame – so you know it’s in good hands. And Sushant himself has experience playing the role of a cricketer, as he has done so before in his debut film, Kai Po Che. We’re expecting, though, that this film will involve some more training and workshops for the actor, as it’s going to be quite a task to play the legendary Dhoni.

The film is all set to hit cinemas in 2015, and we’re already really looking forward to it. A biopic on Dhoni is exciting news! Is this something you’d like to watch? And do you think Sushant is a good pick for the character? Let us know in the comments below!
