As we had reported earlier, it was heard from a source that Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan‘s role had been chopped off from the recently released biopic ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story‘ at the last minute. However, dismissing this report the makers of the movie have now given a statement which says that the actor was never considered for the Dhoni biopic.
The official spokesperson from Fox Star Studios has given a statement which says, “Fawad Khan was never part of the film ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’. Even when we were casting the movie, he was not in the consideration set. Dhoni is an extremely realistic biopic and we have been true to that even in our casting.” [sic]

Reportedly, Fawad’s role was removed just before the release of the movie due to the current issue over the ban of Pakistani artistes in the wake of Uri terror attacks. But after the release of this statement, definitely, all the rumours will die down.
‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’ stars Sushant Singh Rajput playing the titular role besides Kiara Advani, Disha Patani, Anupam Kher and Bhumika Chawla in pivotal parts. This Neeraj Pandey directorial had released last week on Friday.
