MS Dhoni’s upcoming biopic has managed to have a major casting coup. Many A-list actors have been roped in for playing some of the lead characters in the film. Neeraj Pandey, the director, seems to have brought together a deadly combination of varied talents who will be playing real life cricketers from the Indian National Team.
While Dhoni’s character is being played by Sushant Singh Rajput, Telugu superstar Ram Charan Teja is likely to play the character of Suresh Raina. Our khabroos inform us that Alia Bhatt is touted to be playing MSD’s wife Sakshi Singh Dhoni. While John Abraham is to play fast bowler Ishant Sharma, Fawad Khan will be seen playing Virat Kohli, Bigg Boss 8 contestant Gautam Gulati will be essaying Zaheer Khan’s character and Aftab Shivdasani will be seen as Joginder Sharma.
Also some of the important non-cricketing characters will be played by B-Town’s big league actors. While Irrfan Khan is said to be playing Gurunath, it is said that Satish Kaushik will play the role of S Srinivasan.
