Sushant Singh Rajput is on his peak of success as his movie MS Dhoni – The Untold Story reached heights and crosses 200 Cr mark. His character portraying MS Dhoni is widely appreciated and loved by the audience.
His success is linked with MS Dhoni as the film is based on the biopic of most loved cricketer of India – Dhoni. And people want to know the life history of the star cricketer.
As he was asked about his success he said : “Brand Dhoni helped brand Sushant in real terms.Look at the opening we got. I have no shame in admitting that it was because of Dhoni and also because of Neeraj Pandey’s trailer that people were so excited for the movie.People were anticipating it to be Mahi’s story and that’s why they went for it.”
He praised the movie director Neeraj Pandey and said : “The movie wouldn’t have done well had Neeraj not made it so good. I don’t matter since I put my same efforts in all movies but not all do well. So when one succeeds and other doesn’t, it doesn’t matter to me since both are equally dear to me.”
When he was confronted about his change in attitude after success and hike in his fees he said : “I already had five films before Dhoni released, so there’s no point negotiating anything.But if I decide to go and attend weddings, I would take a bigger chunk but not for films. I do other stuffs because I take too much time for a movie. So I will do everything else for money but not films.”
He adds: “Money is not a consideration for me. It’s upto my management who has to decide dates. But if I am offered five movies and like two but have time for one, it will come down to money offered. That’s my management’s job. I don’t know how much money I have in my bank account.”
