Rumours have been doing rounds about how much money Indian captain MS Dhoni took for the rights to make a biopic on him. A source earlier had revealed that MS Dhoni took Rs 80 crores but later on, director Neeraj Pandey had pit all these claims to ground.
Neeraj had said that no filmmaker can even think of giving such a huge amount to a cricketer.
Now, a different source has come out with different take. According to a sports website SportzWiki, it was reported, “Dhoni was given Rs 45 crore for the movie-making rights to his life and access to personal information, documents and pictures, plus Dhoni’s availability for marketing and promotion of the film.”
The source also said that Sushant Singh Rajput, who plays Dhoni in the film, was paid Rs 2 Crore whereas Arun Pandey, Dhoni’s manager and also the producer of the film was paid Rs 5 crore.
We wonder what truth is but there is no denying that the MS Dhoni biopic will be worth every rupee spent on its making.
