Neeraj Pandey’s biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story just got pushed to a 30 September release date, and our guess is that the makers decided to do this to avoid a clash with the Sonakshi Sinha starrer Akira.

The much awaited biopic on cricket icon Mahendra Singh Dhoni was initially set for release on 2 September. But Akira just took that slot. Actor Sushant Singh Rajput shared the news via an Instagram post and Vijay Singh, CEO Fox Star Studios also confirmed the same in his statement to the media.

It was a unanimous decision to release the film on September 30. This would give the team some more time to present the film to the audiences in the best way. We in no way wanted to compromise on the visual experience that Neeraj Pandey is set to create with this movie.

M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story also stars Anupam Kher, Bhoomika Chawla, Kiara Advani, Herry Tangri and Disha Patani.
