What happens when two of the most important forms of entertainment in India, cricket & cinema are blended together? We have great biopics like ‘MS Dhoni: The untold story’, which is an upcoming movie of Sushant Singh Rajput in the the lead role along with other prominent actors in the film like Kiara Advani, Disha Patani, Anupam Kher, Bhumika Chawla and Rajesh Sharma.
Director Neeraj claims that 98 percent of the what happens in the movie, is based on cricketer Dhoni’s real life. The rise and rise of MS Dhoni will be showcased on the big screen in Marathi, Tamil and Telugu as well.
The movie does not glorify or glamorize anything. It portrays the uphill battle faced by Dhoni to enjoy the success towards the end. Wondering why Sushanth was chosen for this role? The actor himself quoted that he and Dhoni take life as it comes and work hard to realize their dreams. Now you know what is common between Sushanth and Dhoni. We second their belief that it is the the journey that counts more than the planning or achievement.
Apparently, our dear cricketer MS Dhoni got emotional after he watched the movie. He stated that it is very important to believe in your dreams and work towards them.
