Sushant Singh Ra­jput (far left) has been gear­ing up to play In­dian skip­per Ma­hen­dra Singh Dhoni (left) in the biopic, di­rected by Neeraj Pandey. While there have been too many spec­u­la­tions about the film be­ing de­layed, a source close to the pro­ject in­sists that ev­ery­thing is on track. “The sto­ries about the film be­ing de­layed be­cause of sud­den mon­e­tary is­sues is ab­so­lute non­sense. It is very much on sched­ule and will re­lease some­time in mid-2016.”

Sushant has just cut his hair short to start film­ing for the younger por­tions in the film. Con­trary to what is be­ing re­ported, only Dhoni’s jour­ney from be­com­ing a cap­tain to win­ning the World Cup will be de­picted in the film. “There is no men­tion of his wife or his daugh­ter Ziva in the film be­cause the timeline ends in 2011 when the In­dian team won the World Cup with Dhoni be­ing the cap­tain,” the source fur­ther re­veals. Along with Dhoni, there will also be a lot of other crick­eters seen through­out the film. “It is not pos­si­ble to make a film on Dhoni with­out his friends. Al­most the en­tire In­dian cricket team will be seen in glimpses. While some have al­ready shot for it, some are yet to film their se­quences,” our source adds.
