MS Dhoni-The Untold Story: Kiara Advani to play Sakshi Dhoni

A biopic on ace cricketer MS Dhoni is on process. The ‘Fugly’ actress Kiara Advani has been roped in play the female lead; she will play the role of Sakshi Dhoni, wife of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Kiara will star opposite Sushant Singh Rajput, who is playing the lead character of MS Dhoni.

The casting process for Sakshi’s role was in progress for quite a long time and finally Neeraj, who is very particular about his cast has got the right fame for his film. Several actresses have been auditioned for the role. Bombay Times quotes a source as saying, “It was quite challenging to find the right casting for Sakshi as people at large have seen enough of Sakshi and the comparison is very obvious. The director always wanted a young actor in the film – not someone who has done many roles and audiences have seen enough of her to form an impression or an opinion about her. He basically wanted an actor without a baggage. Kiara’s audition was just amazing. Her chemistry with Sushant during the auditions and rehearsals made her land the role. Kiara has been rehearsing non-stop to look and act the part.”

Directed by Neeraj Pandey of ‘A Wednesday’, ‘Baby’ and ‘Special 26’ fame, the film also features John Abraham as Yuvraj Singh, Fawad Khan as Virat Kohli and Ram Charan Teja as Suresh Raina.

Sushant Singh Rajput has undergone immense training to enact the role. The film titled ‘MS Dhoni-The Untold Story’ will start shooting by the end of this month.
