But looks like this dream to see the real and reel in one frame will be fulfilled with actor Sushant Singh Rajput and cricketer M S Dhoni. Yes, if the latest buzz is to be believed, then a luxury car brand has approached Sushant & M.S Dhoni to come together for an ad. Sushant Singh Rajput is playing Indian cricket captain Dhoni in M.S DHONI – The Untold Story biopic, being directed by Neeraj Pandey.
The proposal is currently at a very nascent stage wherein the brand is very keen to have both the personalities on board. The makers of the ad believe that both Sushant & Dhoni haven’t been seen together in public spaces and so they are very keen on exploring the equity that both these personalities hold together.
Sushant and Dhoni share a great chemistry and purely represent the young space. The brand further represents boyhood, travelling adventure and the sportiness. Personally both are known for all the mentioned definitions and therefore make for a superb duo for the ad campaign. In fact, Dhoni’s father has also expressed on how Sushant Singh is just the right guy to play his son in the forthcoming biopic.
The ad campaign is likely to break closer to October/November if the commercials are in place. The team has started in full swing! Sources close have informed that the makers have recently gone to Sushant & Dhoni with the ad brief. It’s only after this that the entire team will be created and taken on board to shoot the ad campaign.
With that piece of news, we can’t wait to witness the reel and real Dhoni together!
