"The Neeraj Pandey directorial M.S. Dhoni: An Untold Story", starring Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role, will release in India on Friday. Shushant called playing Dhoni to be a challenge but he has worked hard to gain the same.
Regarded as a national hero within his home country, Dhoni is also celebrated in the United Kingdom and around the world as one of the sport's most iconic stars, worthy of praise for his talents on the cricket pitch and for realising his dreams in the face of adversity. "And that's the reason his shots that he has played so far that you have seen in the trailers, all look quite authentic", Dhoni told TOI in a recent chat.
After intensified relations with India, Pakistani cinemas have been directed to not exhibit any Indian movie in September and October.
The high on content pieces have got the audiences curious for the release of the movie. The film was widely appreciated for its performance and direction.
This has come after media reports indicated that the film has been "banned" and "boycotted" by Pakistan in retaliation to the threats given by India's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) to Pakistani artistes. "I don't know how much I have helped him but he has done a fantastic job", Dhoni signed off.
The duo have never worked together and that makes the pair even more interesting. Of course, the presence of a superstar actor would have resulted in the Neeraj Pandey film turning out to be an altogether different ballgame. The movie, made on a budget of RS.104 Crores is pegged to earn it's budget's worth in the box office at a lightning speed rate.
The movie has good buzz and soundtracks are already creating hype. With Dhoni himself reaching out to the masses both in India and overseas, one can expect viewers to flock in hordes on the opening day. Do we need to say more?
