MS Dhoni is an icon. He’s also a mystery. He barged on the Indian cricket scene with a stellar 148 in Vizag against Pakistan, and hasn’t looked back since. He became a core member of the 2007 WC squad, which crashed out in spectacular fashion. And Dhoni was appointed captain, after Dravid called it quits.
Neeraj Pandey (the director of A Wednesday) shall delve into the life of one of India’s most famous cricketers. Sushant Singh Rajput looks like he has totally internalised the philosophy of being Mahendra Singh Dhoni. As he grows the long locks, executes the helicopter shot to perfection, the film’s trailer gives us insight into the life of what went into the making of Dhoni the man, alongside Dhoni the cricketer.
MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, stars Rajesh Sharma as the Indian captain’s childhood coach, Anupam Kher plays Dhoni’s father while Bhumika Chawla plays Jayanti, Dhoni’s sister. The film is slated to release on September 30.
