Sushant Singh Rajput who essayed the role of Indian cricketer, Mahendra Singh Dhoni in ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’ (2016) is set to play a sportsman yet again, however this time as basketball player in Nitesh Tiwari ‘Chhichhore’.
Deccan Chronicle reveals a source saying that, “There is match between House 3 to which Sushant belongs, and a rival House 4 of a college. Initially the first team does not fare well and loses the game to the opponents. The climax game is yet to be played. We are sure the last game will be winning game of Sushant’s team i.e. House 3.”
The source went onto say, “Chhichhore has a long shooting schedule. The team has been shooting for almost a month and a half now.” Also, “the film-maker has been shooting all the college sequences for this long period of time. The set-up of college too is a look-alike of the era of the 90’s. The college where the shoot has taken place is New Zealand College in Aarey Milk colony, film city area. Thereafter the next schedule took place in Gondecha College, Chembur and the shoot is going on for the past one week at the Powai Gymkhana grounds. Probably another three days of shoot will be needed to conclude this third schedule.”
Singh stars opposite Shraddha Kapoor in the film. The source said, “Shraddha has donned the 90’s style statement, with a curly hair style and a pink, white and blue hair band. This look (resembling the hairstyle of Kangana Ranaut) will really refresh the memories of that era.”
The role of the villain in ‘Chhichhore’ is being played by Tahir Raj Bhasin, who plots to take revenge from Rajput and his college basketball. The film is due for release in 2019.
