M.S.Dhoni: The untold story is a story of a ticket collector of a Kharagpur station, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In his childhood days, he used to play badminton and football and excelled in them. He was a goalkeeper for his football team. But his coach had some different plans for him. He sent M. S. Dhoni to play cricket for a local cricket club where Dhoni impressed everyone with his wicket-keeping skills. Later, he played for the club for the Under-16 Championship. To earn bread and money, Dhoni became a Train Ticket Examiner (TTE). Through this, Dhoni started playing for the Railway team. Hence, began the journey of the Indian cricket captain.
The movie will be released on September 2nd, 2016. The teaser was released in the month of March which gave a glimpse of the movie. The lead character of the movie, i.e. M. S. Dhoni is played by Sushant Singh Rajput. Sushant first appeared on a TV serial – Pavitra Rishta. From here, his career skyrocketed and made his film debut in Kai Po Che directed by Abhishek Kapoor. Since then he has appeared in 3 movies. M.S.Dhoni: The Untold story will be his fourth film which is going to be very exciting to watch knowing what an amazing actor he is.
The role of Sakshi Dhoni is played by Kiara Advani, who also happens to be a new debutante in the Bollywood industry. She made her first appearance in the movie, Fugly, which wasn’t quite a success. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Kiara is not happy with her role because she feels that her character’s role is being neglected, and the preference is given to her co-star Disha Patani, who is playing the role of Dhoni’s ex-girlfriend. But the rumors has been rubbished by the film’s spokesperson.
Anupam Kher is playing the roles of Dhoni’s father (Pan Singh). John Abraham and Fawad Khan are playing the roles of Yuvraj Singh and Virat Kohli respectively. Recently, during the World Cup season earlier this month, the director ( Neeraj Pandey) dedicated a song ‘ Phir Se…’ to the Indian Cricket team as a tribute to them.
After a thorough research and background check on Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s struggle from being a TTE to the captain of the Indian cricket team, Neeraj Pandey along with his cast and crew is ready to unfold the story. The actors are putting all their efforts to make the movie very happening. I’m sure all the cricket fans are pretty excited for the most awaited story of the season.
