Shaandaar is releasing on October 22, the same date which was initially blocked for Sushant Singh Rajput's film...
Yes! Unfortunately, MS Dhoni biopic- The Untold Story is NOT releasing this year! Right from the start the film has been facing several creative issues. There was a time when reports had also suggested that the Neeraj Pandey directorial might get shelved. Now the latest we hear is that the film which was initially to release on October 22, has been straight away been pushed to 2016. Considering Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor's Shaandaar recently blocked its release date as October 22, it is but obvious for us to believe if that's the reason why the makers of Sushant's film decided to postpone their release. However, that's not the only one.
A source close to the development reasoned that it is not uncommon for biopics to extend their deadlines. And in this case, Sushant had to undergo intensive training, as well as grow his hair long and then cut it short since Dhoni's look has changed dramatically in the last decade. The research and scripting also took time. "They had to decide what personal and professional details to incorporate and what to leave out. A certain decorum has to be maintained as Dhoni is still a playing captain and has not retired from the game.
Also another reason for the delay being its tricky casting. "A lot of actors have to be cast, including those who will play sports icons like Sachin Tendulkar and Saurav Ganguly," added the source.
So as per this latest development, MS Dhoni biopic will now go on floors in mid-July and hit the screens in early 2016. Keep watching this space for more updates!
