Sushant Singh Rajput, who will be seen playing Mahendra Singh Dhoni in a biopic on the acclaimed Indian captain, is now set to act with the cricketer in a television commercial.
According to reports, Sushant Singh Rajput and Mahendra Singh Dhoni have been approached by a luxury car brand to shoot for a television commercial that will be aired close to the release of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story in September/October.
The brand is keen to explore the chemistry shared by the real Dhoni and his onscreen avatar. The two were recently told about the promotional campaign of the luxury car and the duo agreed to sign the deal and work together for the brand.
Though Dhoni and Sushant have held a number of interactions - in preparation for the film - they have not made many public appearances together.
MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, directed by Neeraj Pandey, is set to hit the big screen on 2 September, 2016.
The film will focus on Mahendra Singh Dhoni's struggle to be a cricketer and will shed light on a few unknown incidents of his life.
