As good as Sushant Singh Rajput is, there can only be one Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The Indian One-Day International captain was being missed at the press interactions. However, media and fans in Chennai were overjoyed with Dhoni’s antics while promoting his upcoming biopic M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story. 

The Indian cricketer was accompanied by Rajput for the promotion of the their film. Dhoni, who is extremely popular in Chennai having led the now suspended Indian Premier League franchise Chennai Super Kings, paid tribute to Tamil cinema legend Rajinikanth with this little impersonation. 


Though brief, it evoked a humongous response from the media and the crowd. Perhaps, the makers of the film realised that Dhoni promoting the film regularly will only add to the buzz around the film. However, comes this Friday, it will not be Dhoni, but Rajput who will call all the shots.
