Recently, while talking to a leading daily, SSR talked about the positive response, he got for MS Dhoni and here’s what he told: “I have been getting positive feedback for my work since my first release, Kai Po Che (2013). Before the release, Neeraj (Pandey; director) and MS (Mahender Singh Dhoni) appreciated my performance. Since both of them don’t mince words.”
“I was confident that I have done a good job in the movie. The question was; how much the masses will connect with the film. But, thankfully the response to the film has been overwhelming. The credit for which also goes to MS’s popularity, and the content.”
