Predicting that the actor had a prosperous career ahead, Pandey revealed how Dhoni was impressed by Sushant. Pandey also recalled how Sushant trained with a side strain and how Kiran More helped the actor.
He added, “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. Sushant used to practice under the watchful eyes of former cricketer Kiran More who taught him how to keep wickets, which was very essential to play the role of Mahi. I still remember that Sushant had a bad side strain during practice and even there was a crack in his backbone. But he was confident, worked hard in rehabilitation and recovered within a week. Even Mahi was impressed to see his dedication to work.”
