While Sushant Singh Rajput is basking in the success of his recent release, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, (also read: Dhoni bipoic crosses 200 crore worldwide) and reveling in all the accolades his performance has been receiving (also read: 5 moments from the film we'll never forget), there are still those who can find some form of criticism about his role in the film. Well, it’s not possible to please everyone, and like they say, to each his own. Recently, actor Rajat Kapoor, who was last seen in Kapoor & Sons this year, took to Twitter to pass what could be construed as a needless jibe about Sushant in the role of Dhoni, especially considering that the remark had no bearing whatsoever on the actor’s performance.
Dhoni looks so much better than the actor who plays him..#fact— Rajat Kapoor (@mrrajatkapoor) September 29, 2016
Expectedly, fans of the actor and the movie, soon got incensed, and got on Rajat’s case, with some of the comments going way overboard.

@mrrajatkapoor - Seriously!! Get life and stop hating people for their success.????— ADHMfan (@ADHMfan1) October 13, 2016
However, Sushant came back with a response that was both classy and got the point across to Rajat.
Eventually, Rajat saw the film and praised SSR’s performance while also adding a side note on the actor’s fan-following, which has grown exponentially post the Dhoni biopic.
@itsSSR :))) I believe your performance is fab in the film.. and maan, your fan following is huge!! Best wishes, Sushant.— Rajat Kapoor (@mrrajatkapoor) October 12, 2016
To which, Sushant modestly acknowledged that he doesn’t have many fans and also praised Rajat for his own performance in Kapoor & Sons.
They are not my fans sir , I don't have many. They just like good films:)— Sushant Singh Rajput (@itsSSR) October 13, 2016
Ps.- You were really good in Kapoor &sons???? https://t.co/591BWoly7W
All’s well that ends well, and kudos to both actors for handling it so maturely and gracefully. We wish that every Twitter argument could end this way rather than go down the mud-slinging path they usually end up on.
