Dhoni ‘shocked, shattered and morose’ after hearing Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise

Former India captain MS Dhoni was shattered and heartbroken to hear the demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Rajput had essayed the role of former Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the 2016 film “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story.”

Since his demise, although Dhoni has not shared much on social media, his manager/friend/ and film’s co-producer Arun Pandey earlier revealed that the cricketer has been 'morose'.

Now, director Neeraj Pandey came forth revealing that Sushant's death has left the cricketer shattered.

Speaking to xtratime.in, Neeraj said, "Apart from calling Mahi bhai, I have also called two of his best friends Mihir Diwakar and Arun Pandey. They all seemed very upset with such a piece of terrible news. Mahi bhai was in a shock to hear the news and got shattered."

During the filming of MS Dhoni, Sushant and the former Indian skipper got close to each other and spent a lot of time together.

Earlier, while talking to ABP Ananda, Arun Pandey revealed that Sushant's untimely demise has deeply affected Dhoni.

He said, "We can’t even believe what has happened. I am not in a position to express my grief. Mahi is also very morose. Such a tragic incident. 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."
