A special treat awaits fans of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. A biopic on the life of the cricketer is all set for a 2015 release with actor Sushant Singh Rajput playing the lead role. The first poster of the film was tweeted by Dhoni's wife Sakshi.
An excited Sakshi took to Twitter to share the first poster of the filmÂ MS Dhoni - The Untold Story. "Clearing out all those rumours being carried out past few days.It was all false.. Here you go ....BOOM !!!" she wrote on the micro-blogging site. The tweet received a good response from her followers - a clear sign that fans of the Indian cricket captain can't wait to see his life on the big screen.
The project was reportedly shelved due to the enormous cost involved - some estimates suggesting a figure close to Rs 45 crore. Sakshi's tweet though has put an end to the speculations.
In the poster, actor Sushant has his back to the viewers and is wearing the Indian ODI jersey with Dhoni's name and number. While the cricketer has mesmerised fans with his skills on the field, Sushant may not have it easy portraying his character in front of the camera. He, however, has delivered some powerful performance in the past - his role in Kai Po Che earning him the most accolades.
