Tiger Shroff's girlfriend Disha Patani to star in MS Dhoni biopic
Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff’s alleged girlfriend Disha Patani stepped into the role of ace skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s biopic, titled, 'MS Dhoni — The Untold Story'.
A source close to the project confirms, "As there was no reference for the character, we were looking out for a young and vivacious girl. Disha fit the bill perfectly. Her character is one of the catalysts in the film. Her pairing with Sushant Singh Rajput looks good."
There were also talks that Parineeti Chopra has been signed to play Dhoni’s wife Sakshi but the actress denied the report.
The makers have roped in Herry Tangri to essay the role of cricketer Yuvraj Singh in the Neeraj Pandey directorial. The Punjabi actor will essay both the younger and mature version of Yuvraj in the film.
Sushant Singh Rajput will essay the role of Mahendra Singh Dhoni while Kiara Advani will be seen in the role of the cricketer’s wife Sakshi Dhoni. Veteran actor Anupam Kher will essay the role of his father Pan Singh in the biopic.
Produced by Rhiti Sports Management, Inspired Entertainment and Adarsh Telemedia and directed by Neeraj Pandey, 'MS Dhoni — The Untold Story' is slated to release mid of 2016.
