Was MS Dhoni paid Rs 40 crore for biopic rights? Here’s the truth

By admin, September 9, 2016

The biopic director dismisses rumours of MS Dhoni having been paid Rs 40 crore for rights to his life story.

“That number sounds ridiculous. I don’t think any studio would be dumb enough (to pay so much),” he says.

Neeraj also chose not to discuss how much money the makers coughed up to obtain footage of Captain Cool’s World Cup winning six, or Dhoni’s manager Arun Pandey’s stake in the film. “It’s none of my business, actually,” he says.
