New Delhi: Sushant Singh Rajput`s family also joined the proud nation in applauding his performance in the MS Dhoni biopic. Pinkvilla recently met with the 30-year-old on-screen Dhoni in the capital and asked if the entire Rajput family had seen the movie.
"Yeah, they finally did. And they were extremely proud that I dropped out of engineering college to pursue acting. It was a huge compliment for me," said the star. Sushant Singh was pursuing mechanical engineering at Delhi Technological University but chose to drop out in the third year to go for a career in acting.
As per some reports, Sushant had even stopped his family from watching the movie on their own and planned a trip to the capital to catch their live reaction. Interestingly, Sushant`s elder sister Mitu was the real cricket player in his family and she even helped her baby brother to don Dhoni`s role to perfection.
Further talking of his family`s role in his life, the `Kai Po Che` actor said, "They know me inside out and they`re big admirers of Dhoni so I feel it`s a big step forward if I could convince them that this guy is me."
`M S Dhoni: The Untold Story` opened to a whopping Rs. 21.30 crores on the first day of its release and emerged the biggest opener in biopic genre.
