Watch: When MS Dhoni recreated Rajinikanth’s classic scene in Chennai

Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sushant Singh Rajput have been busy doing the rounds of various placed and surprising fans across India while promoting the cricketer's upcoming biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. And the latest stop for the duo was Chennai, where Dhoni, who hails from Ranchi, is considered somewhat of an adopted son, thanks to his lengthy stint with IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings.

Dhoni seemed to revisit his IPL days, when he went to Satyam Cinemas in Chennai on Friday, and even spoke in Tamil, much to the delight of his fans from the state.

Besides interacting with the fans and discussing his upcoming film, Dhoni also amused the fans by doing his version of the classic Rajinikanth move. He then recited the lines En Vazhi Thani Vazhi, the star's memorable dialogue from the movie Padayappa.

The film, due to release next week, features Sushant Singh Rajput as the titular characters as well as Anupam Kher and Kiara Advani in other roles. The biopic is said to reveal the story behind the rise of one of India's most successful cricket captains, from a ticket collector to a World Cup winner.

MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, directed by Neeraj Pandey, will release in on 30 September.
