It is a known fact that Sushant went all out to prep for the role and step into Dhoni’s big shoes. He didn’t just nail the cricketer’s characteristics but also perfected his trademark shots on the field, which not only won over cricket enthusiasts but also movie buffs alike. We have seen many videos and photos on how the actor got into character for the part. But did you know that Sushant also prepared a set of 250 questions to ask Dhoni?
Keeping in mind Dhoni’s hectic schedules, Sushant revealed that they had just three sets of meetings during his 12 months of prep. While in the first meeting, Sushant just asked the cricketer about his story, for their second meeting, he drew up a list of 250 hypothetical multiple-choice questions.
The actor reportedly made the questionnaire to better understand the cricketer in order to bring out his innermost thought and feeling in his act.
Reacting to Rajput’s elaborate questionnaire and Dhoni quipped that the actor asked too many questions, while also acknowledging that it was necessary as they didn’t spend a lot of time together.
Sushant passed away on June 14 at his Bandra residence.
Although initially reported as a ‘suicide’, investigations into his death are still underway by the CBI.
