"Neeraj sir called me for this film. Before 'M. S. Dhoni: The Untold Story', he had never seen any of my films. We had a general 20 minute conversation after which he said, 'Okay, you are selected.' Even I didn't take a chance to ask him why you are taking me," Sushant said here on Tuesday during a chat with actor Gaurav Kapur.

Sushant admitted that one thing that he couldn't understand aboutDhoniwas his attitude towards life. "I have been Dhoni's fan for last 12 years and I am following him everywhere. Just there was one thing which I couldn't understand - his way of thinking and why he is the way he is? I asked him a lot of questions about that even made him angry," he said.

Dhoni, who was also present during the event, said he would not like to relive the shooting days of the film again because Sushant asked him a lot of questions.

"Sushant has done very well. He has totally imitated the way I talk and I walk. I don't think I carry that grace with me, but he has copied everything. He practiced cricket for almost nine months for two-three hours every day. Now he can even participate in a cricket tournament.

"But he asked a lot of questions to me. I really don't wish to relive those days again,"Dhonisaid. He even quipped that he would prefer former Australian leg spinner Shane Warne's googly over Sushant's questions because "it's my profession and I can handle that easily".

Dhoni, who is often called 'Mahi' by his fans, said he has found another nickname through this film -- 'Subject'. "Wherever I go with them for promotions, they introduce me saying that the subject of the film is here. So I have found a new nickname," he said.

"M. S. Dhoni: The Untold Story" is slated to release on Friday.
