At the same time, Dhoni praised Sushant's performance in the film and called him a "fantastic actor", who has worked very hard for the film and is now one of the better cricketers in all the celebrities cricket leagues that are happening.

He said Rajput wanted to know Dhoni's thinking and frame of mind when he plays cricket.

"It was difficult because there are a lot of things can't tell him because I'm still playing active cricket and captaining the (limited overs) team," he said.

The movie shows Dhoni's journey from a TTE (Train Ticket Examiner) at Kharagpur railway station (in Bengal), to one of the most celebrated cricketers in world cricket.

The film is all set to hit the theatres on September 30.
