After the super hype on Ektaa Kapoor’s upcoming biopic on Muhammed Azharuddin, one of the most successful and stylish captain of Indian cricket, there is a new biopic (M. S. Dhoni: The Untold Story)to be launched on Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the only captain to have given us a world cup post Kapil Dev.
The film would have Sushant Singh Rajput playing the role of MS Dhoni. Apparently, Dhoni is co-producing this film and is seemed to have charged 40 Crores for giving his inputs to the film. BCCI has been asked for a lot of cricket match recordings for the film and they have demanded 15 Crores for that.
Seems the film is in a financial crisis before its take-off, as it complete budget is around 80 Crores. Fox Star Studios, who are also producing the film are in a tight spot with recent losses and do not want to take any further chances. The film was supposed to roll-out last year but is still being awaited to start shooting.
M. S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, is to be directed by Neeraj Pandey(Baby and Special 26 Fame). MS Dhoni has been one of the most popular and graceful cricketers in recent times and comes from a simple background in Ranchi. The story would have his walk to success, along with his marriage and birth of his daughter as key milestones.
