Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s biopic is surely one the most awaited biopics of Bollywood. The movie stars Sushant Singh Rajput and will be directed by Neeraj Pandey. And now, it is heard that the film has been acquired by Fox Star Studios.
A source said, "Negotiations have been going on for a while but the deal has only recently been sealed for Rs 80 crore. Of this, Rs 20 crore has reportedly been paid to Dhoni for the rights to his life story. As part of the backend deal, the cricketer will also get a share in the film's profits and royalties."
Talking about the deal, spokesperson of Fox Star Studios said, "Discussions are on but the figures you mention are completely incorrect."
