As promotions for the MS Dhoni biopic, ‘MS Dhoni- The Untold Story’ have kick-started, the film’s director, Neeraj Pandey, has revealed that the cricketer feels awkward about having a biopic made on his life.
When asked if Dhoni would be promoting the film, Pandey��told��Mid Day, “As and when he gets the time. You have to bear in mind that it will appear narcissistic of Dhoni to actively promote the film. As it is, he’s feeling awkward about a film being made on him.”
The director went on to rubbish speculations of Dhoni being paid Rs. 40 Crore for the rights of the biopic, stating, “That number sounds ridiculous. I don’t think any studio would be dumb enough (to pay so much).”
The biopic stars Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role and is slated for release on 30th September.
