REVEALED: How much MS Dhoni was paid for his upcoming movie?
NEW DELHI - The whole world is anxiously waiting for the release of upcoming biopic on Team India's skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.

"The film's trailer was released earlier this month", Indian media reported.

It is for the first time that a biopic will be released about a cricketer who has yet not retired from international cricket, Zee News reported.

According to a report published in, India's limited-overs skipper had demanded a sum of Rs. 60 crore for the filmmaker to make a movie on his life.

Reportedly, he was given Rs. 20 crore right after giving his nod to the filmmaker to go ahead with the movie.
