Who is Narendra Singh Dhoni? Where does he stay in Ranchi? And why wasn’t he a part of Neeraj Pandey’s magnum opus, MS Dhoni– The Untold Story.

Bhai not?

The three-hour, ten-minute long film highlights Dhoni’s struggle to become a cricketer, his already known love story with no hanky-panky with any of the Bollywood actresses *cough did anyone mention Deepika Padukone cough*. His friends, and his loving parivaar.

But the script writer or Dhoni, conveniently edited one family member – his elder brother Narendra Singh Dhoni. That’s all, no big deal!

So who is Narendra Singh Dhoni?

He’s a politician in Ranchi, who lives with his wife and two kids. The last we knew he had joined the Samajwadi Party in 2013 and before SP, he was with BJP. Was NS Dhoni’s affiliation to a political party the reason why he wasn’t mentioned even once in the three hour long film?
