We were looking for someone relatively new to the industry and she fits the bill.”Sushant Singh Rajput will be seen as the protagonist in the Neeraj Pandey-directed film, while Kiara Advani, who debuted with ‘Fugly’ last year, will essay the character of Dhoni’s wife, Sakshi.

While Pandey and the film’s spokesperson remained unavailable for comment, another source says, “We are not allowed to reveal details about the role, but like everyone knows, Dhoni’s life story wouldn’t have been what it is without the influence of his ex-girlfriend, who is now no more. So, it will be an interesting part to watch out for.”
