    Actor Kiara Advani is on a promotional spree for her upcoming movie Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 opposite Kartik Aaryan. In a recent promotional interview, the actress spoke about her MS Dhoni: The Untold Story co-star late Sushant Singh Rajput, revealing that she once suggested that a biopic should be made on the late actor.

    For the unversed, Kiara played the role of Sakhi Dhoni in the 2016 biographical sports drama on cricketer MS Dhoni. Written and directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film has the late actor in the titular role. The film also stars Disha Patani in a prominent role. 

    On June 14, 2020, Sushant committed suicide by hanging from the ceiling at his Bandra residence. 

    In a recent chat on The Ranveer Show Podcast, Kiara revealed that she actually got to know Sushant in the Aurangabad shoot schedule of MS Dhoni. “We started the shoot in Aurangabad, and we must have packed up at 8 pm. We had a 4 am flight. And we decided, let’s call it an all-nighter. That is when I got to spend time with Sushant, and we got chatting. It is so interesting because he shared about his journey, how Dhoni happened for him, and generally his life story, from being a backup dancer behind Preity Zinta, how he was an engineer, and he always had those massive books he was always reading,” she said.

    Further, Kiara went on to say that during their chat, she once told Sushant that someone should someday make a biopic on him because he was so interesting. She also said that the late actor was very passionate about his craft and used to only sleep for two hours during the shoot.

    Meanwhile, Kiara will next be seen in Anees Bazmee’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 also starring Tabu, Rajpal Yadav, and Sanjay Mishra. The horror-comedy is a standalone sequel to Priyadarshan’s 2007 film Bhool Bhulaiyaa. It is slated to release in cinemas on May 20, 2022.
