MS Dhoni asks the director to show his struggle instead of glorifying his career
Indian limited over skipper MS Dhoni said that his biopic “MS Dhoni-The Untold Story”- should highlight the struggles of his journey, rather than “glorify him.
Dhoni himself informed the director Neeraj Pandey, during the conceptual phase that the film should depict, “the journey of a professional sportsperson”.
The biopic set to release this today (Friday).
MS Dhoni is currently enjoying his trip to the United States along with his wife Sakshi Singh Dhoni and the producer of the film Arun Pandey, in order to promote the film.
Dhoni at a press conference in New York spoke about the film sporting the Indian jersey.
“It is a very simple story and that is the beauty of it. One thing I told Neeraj [the director] was, this story should not be to glorify me. It is about the journey of a professional sports person and that’s what it should be about.”
In the movie, the role of Dhoni portrayed by Sushant Singh Rajput. The movie describes Dhoni’s journey from a small town boy to a World Cup winning Indian captain.
“All those things that had happened became fresh in my memory — from where I lived, how my school was, where we played. I went blank. It was nice to be in the past for a moment and you get a view of what others think about me. I have never talked to my parents about cricket and it was nice to get a glimpse of what they really thought about me.”
However, Dhoni is little worried as after watching the movie how the fans will react.
“I was a little worried when initially the concept of the movie came but once we were in, I was not worried about it as I was just narrating my side of the story.”
