The actor Rajat Kapoor who has received a lot of acclaim for films like Aankhon Dekhi and Kapoor & Sons, recently posted an unsavoury comment on actor Sushant Singh Rajput on Twitter.
Rajat wrote that Dhoni looks better than Sushant Singh Rajput, who played the cricketer in his biopic, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.
Dhoni looks so much better than the actor who plays him..#fact

Sushant, who’s known to be a humble actor, responded politely saying he tried to compensate his inadequacies as a looker with his acting chops.

Fans and admirers, however, did not take to the comment kindly and severely slammed Rajat Kapoor. The director replied to Sushant that his performance is fab.

Sushant told the Rajant that they weren’t his fans and he didn’t have too many. He also told him that Rajat was impressive in the acclaimed Kapoor & Sons.
