Parineeti Chopra to play Dhoni’s wife Sakshi in MS Dhoni biopic

Parineeti Chopra has been approached to play Sakshi Rawat, cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wife in MS Dhoni biopic while Anupam Kher has been roped in to play MS Dhoni’s father Pan Singh.

Before Parineeti Chopra was confirmed for the role, names like Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor and Kriti Sanon were tabled.

A source says, "The makers are keen to sign Pari as she is as bubbly as Dhoni's wife. Moreover, she has worked with Sushant Singh Rajput in Shuddh Desi Romance and their pairing had been appreciated. So, she is high up on the makers' wishlist to be cast opposite Sushant yet again."

The biopic titled 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story' revolves around Dhoni's personal life and professional career, including his relationship with Sakshi, who was his longtime sweetheart before they tied the knot in 2012. According to sources, Sakshi's character has a large screen time.

However Parineeti Chopra's spokesperson is in denial mode, he says, "There is no truth to this story."

‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’ will release on October 22, 2015.  Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput will be seen in the role of the male lead.
