Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast 2.0 stars Mustafa and Kiara Advani, gyrating snakily in red. The original song was filmed on Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon for their 1994 film Mohra
The film has found fans amongst the film industry and the reason is none other than Sushant, who has been receiving praise from many notable personalities on Twitter
"Sushant is exceptional, he has totally imitated me the way I talk, the way I walk, he has copied everything, that's the beauty of it. When we talk about cricket specifically, he has practiced for 9 months, for two to two and a half hours every day, infact now he can even participate as a cricketer, in between where there is off season for movies, he can go and play a lot of leagues," Dhoni said at an event here
Wouldn't Kiara, who made her Bollywood debut with 2014 film Fugly, have liked a wee bit more of the spotlight? The actress says, "I always knew what I was getting into and had no qualms about it. Every character in the film is instrumental in taking Dhoni's story forward"
It seems just as Sushant Singh Rajput has incorporated Dhoni's mannerisms and sport style (including his famous Helicopter shot), Kiara also became Sakshi's doppelganger.
"We are not trying to glorify Dhoni. We are not over-glamourising anything. Right from his birth to the 2011 World cup six that he hit, we are showing everything," Sushant said
"It was not possible for Akshay to play a 16-17 year old teenager in the movie as Dhoni's younger version. So I didn't cast him as MS Dhoni," Neeraj Pandey
Sung and composed by Amaal Malik, the song might be the new love ballad to listen to on loop. Jab Tak has been written by Manoj Muntashir
The trailer of the film, which was officially released by producers Fox Star Studios on Twitter on Thursday night, is nothing short of awe-inspiring.
Sushant said, "I hope MS likes it and everybody else who watches the film gets to know the real story of the man."
"It was a unanimous decision to release the film on September 30. This would give the team some more time to present the film to the audiences in the best way. We in no way wanted to compromise on the visual experience that Neeraj Pandey is set to create with this movie," Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, said in a statement.
Sushant Singh Rajput, meanwhile, will be seen in MS Dhoni - The Untold Story, a biopic on Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Fugly actress Kiara Advani plays M S Dhoni's wife Sakshi. Actor Anupam Kher portrays Dhoni's father. Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film is scheduled to release on September 2
