We have good news for all the Sushant Singh Rajput fans out there. The sequel to the 2016 hit film M S Dhoni: The Untold Story is on the cards and Sushsant Singh Rajput will reprise his role in the film, reports mid-day. The second installment will focus on Mahendra Singh Dhoni's life after the 2011 world cup victory and it will also document different facets of his personal life. A source close to the actor told mid-day: "There is the thrilling win against Bangalore at the T20 this year (Dhoni was captain of the winning team Chennai Super Kings ) that can be depicted in the film. Apart from that, India's steady run, up to the semi-finals, at the 2015 World Cup will find a place in the narrative."

According to the source, just like the first part, the second installment of the series will also witness a fair share of involvement from the former skipper, particularly during the scripting process. Though the director of the film has not been decided upon, as of now but Sushant is expected to begin with his cricket lessons soon.

The film is expected to go on floors next year and will reportedly be produced by Ronnie Screwvala's RSVP Films.
