In the year 2016, Sushant played the lead role in MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, a film based on Dhoni’s life. For this, former wicketkeeper Kiran More gave him special training.

“Sushant was only 34 and a prosperous career was waiting for him, I have no doubt about that. There are ups and downs in everyone’s life. Sushant used to practice under the watchful eyes of former cricketer Kiran More who taught him how to keep wickets, which was very essential to play the role of Mahi,” he said.

“I still remember that Sushant had a bad side strain during practice and even there was a crack in his backbone. But he was confident, worked hard in rehabilitation and recovered within a week. Even Mahi was impressed to see his dedication to work.”

Actor Sushant, who achieved a special place in the Bollywood industry in a very short time, said goodbye to the world on Sunday. It is being said that he was undergoing treatment for depression for 6 months.
