There’s rumour that Dhoni has been already paid Rs 20 crore for the rights to his life story.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni may have announced his retirement from India’s Test playing squad but off the field he is still a name that sells. Ever since his biopic, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story was announced with Sushant Singh Rajput in the title role.Reports reveal that the film has been acquired by Fox Star Studios. Not surprising, considering the studio has major investments in a sports channel that they own, making the film a marketable and commercially viable property. The film is gearing up for a release later this year and is written and directed by Neeraj Pandey.The film will not only trace the journey of India’s World Cup winning captain on the field but also reveal interesting aspects of Captain Cool’s personal life.
