Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who played lead in Shuddh Desi Romance last year, is all set to do a biopic on the life of Indian Cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
The biopic is titled MS Dhoni – The Untold Story. Neeraj Pandey will be directing the film.
The biopic was shelved due to the apparently high cost (around Rs. 45 crore) of acquiring the rights for the film.
Neeraj Pandey was in a fix as the producers would have found it difficult to make profit from the film made on such a huge production budget.
However, the skipper’s wife took to Twitter on September 25, to clear all the false reports.
MS Dhoni – The Untold Story’s poster revealed Sushant Singh wearng ODI Jersey sporting Dhoni’s name and number on the back.
MS Dhoni – The Untold Story is set to be released next year.
