Now MS Dhoni to have a biopic
MUMBAI: Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will soon join the list of sports stars like Milkha Singh and Mary Kom, with a biopic about him titled ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’.
Directed by National Film Award-winning director Neeraj Pandey, who has produced hits like ‘A Wednesday’ and ‘Special 26’, the film will have Sushant Singh Rajput portraying the role of Dhoni.
It is produced by Inspired Entertainment, a division of sports management firm Rhiti Sports Management, which also manages Dhoni.
The feature film will not only cover the rise of the World Cup-winning captain but also reveal facts about Dhoni’s personal life and journey, before he became a global sporting icon.
Rhiti Sports Management chairman Arun Pandey said, “MS Dhoni is one of the biggest sporting icons in this world, and his biopic will certainly be an inspiration to those who dare to dream and then go all out to achieve their dreams. Neeraj Pandey, one of the most acclaimed directors, is always a great choice for helming the project and Sushant is very promising and was undoubtedly the first choice for the role.”
Rajput added, “I am immensely excited for the opportunity to play MS Dhoni on screen. He is an inspiration to the millions and Neeraj Pandey is one of the most prolific directors.”
