Are bahut mazaa aaya. Chuki wo bhi Patna se hain bahut si baatein hui unse. Pehele 2-3 din jyaada baat nai hui but baad me we were like long lost friends. Sushant has worked very hard for this role. For an entire year he has lived life of Dhoni. All the credit goes to him. And the result is there for you to see. He’s very down to earth as a person. We remain in touch even today though the shooting got over months ago. There was a connect between us. “6 mahine baad bhi baat ho lekin ek connect ho to achha lagta hai and we have established that kind of a relation.” We ate singhaada, jhaalmuri and balushahi together and used to discuss about our days in Patna, so all in all it was an awesome experience to have worked with Sushant Singh Rajput.”
