‘MS Dhoni – The Untold Story’ is just four days away from release, and is set to unearth unknown and untouched aspects of MS Dhoni’s life. Dhoni’s fans are expecting to know even the minutest of details regarding his life, but it seems it’s not going to happen.
Neeraj Pandey, director of the movie, revealed that some scenes have been removed, despite being there in the movie. One of the scenes from the trailer in which Sushant Singh Rajput was seen discussing with the selectors for removing three cricketers from the ODI team has been cut. “The scene is there in the film,” Neeraj Pandey said. “It’s just that we have decided not to take the three names that are taken during the course of the particular meeting.”
“We have decided not to go with it considering that it will be perceived in a different taste, and also keeping in mind that there’s considerable amount of respect for the three cricketers.”
Pandey said that the makers didn’t want to give any kind of chance, which would create unnecessary fuss, and blown out of proportion. “I smelt chance more than controversy,” Neeraj Pandey explained. “I quite agree that it would have been blown out of context and out of proportion, and do more damage than good.”
“Plus, the fact remains that these are cricketers who have served the nation, and it could have been taken in the wrong way,” he concluded.
