According to a report in DNA, journalists were left red-faced during the trailer launch of MS Dhoni’s biopic ” M.S. Dhoni- The Untold Story.” As expected there was huge hype surrounding the occasion. A grand event was organized by the producers of the movie where Dhoni who was accompanied by film director Neeraj Pandey and Fox Star Studios CEO Vijay Singh were seen. Producer of the movie, the Fox Star Hindi had also organized contests and promised the winners a chance to interact with Dhoni during the launch.
The much-anticipated movie trailer has already taken the nation by storm and fans all over the country have been heaping lavish praise on the brilliant trailer.
Starring Sushant Singh Rajput as Team India captain the movie traces the journey of the India’s most successful captain of all time, who fought against all the odds and crossed numerous hurdles to play for his country. Dhoni’s journey from a T.C. in Indian Railways to the pinnacle of world cricket is the base of the movie.
Needless to say that we were absolutely blown away by the trailer but soon after its release a bizarre incident took place. Invited by the Fox, the media persons were told that they will be given the opportunity to interact with Dhoni but little did the journalists know that the organizers had something else going on in their mind. Assured by that promise, the journalist waited for 4 long hours only to be informed later that Dhoni would not be interacting with them as he was leaving. That did not go down too well with the journalists with some of them even threatening to walk out of the event. When the organizers were asked about the reason for their inappropriate conduct,a Fox studio representative said: “We were told Dhoni doesn’t want to take questions from the media. How could we inform you at the last moment?”
Initially, both the fans and media persons were invited together. At first, the fans were asked to interact with Dhoni and when the journalists protested they were promised to have a separate round of questions and answers with Dhoni which did not pan out in the end.
Meanwhile, the much-anticipated movie will hit the theaters on September 30, 2016.
