Actor Rajput set to play Dhoni in biopic

If Mahendra Singh Dhoni fans have not got enough of the cricketer on field then now they will be served 'captain cool' on the big screen as actor Sushant Singh Rajput is set to portray the Indian skipper in a 'biopic' come 2015.

With the introductory poster of the film titled 'M.S. Dhoni - The Untold Story' released in the national dailies today, the movie certainly becomes an awaited event alogwith the 50-over World Cup next year.

The project, which reportedly ran into financial problems, is now making headlines and Dhoni's wife Sakshi was quick to share her joy on twitter after she tweeted the first poster of the film.

"Clearing out all those rumours being carried out past few days. It was all false.. Here you go ....BOOM !!!" she wrote on the micro-blogging site.

Expectations from the movie have also risen since Sushant, who became famous after playing the protaginist in the screen adaption of Chetan Bhagat's novel 'The Three Big Mistakes of My Life' titled 'Kai Po Che', is expected to play a cricketer's life once again.

In the poster, Sushant as Dhoni, has his back to the viewers with an Indian ODI jersey and number seven displayed on it. Sushant though may have got the character of coach cum cricketer in 'Kai Po Che' right but whether his portrayal of Dhoni will click with the audience or not, only time will tell.

With biopics on Milkha Singh - Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, played by Farhan Akhtar and Mary Kom, played by Priyanka Chopra doing good business, Bollywood is certainly cashing in on the sports stars to bring in the moolah.
