How much did MS Dhoni get for selling his biopic rights?

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.
