M.S. Dhoni wanted to oust from the Indian cricket team at one point, as the makers of “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story” have decided to do away with their mention from the movie.Director Neeraj Pandey says it was a mutual decision between him and the cricketer as they felt revealing the names would do more damage than good.
In a scene in the trailer of the movie, actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who essays Dhoni in the movie, is seen saying: “These three don’t fit in the ODI team anymore.” IN response, one of the selectors says, “Dhoni wants to oust a person who promoted him.” And another says, “He won’t stop at these three.” At that, Sushant says, “We are all servants, and we are all doing national duty”.While this scene will still be a part of the movie, Pandey said they have decided to edit out the names of the three cricketers.
“The scene is there in the film, 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 told.Originally, they had shot the scene with the names — even though Dhoni didn’t want to reveal them.
