Parineeti Chopra to play Sakshi in MS Dhoni’s biopic?

If the gossips mills are to be believed then actor Parineeti Chopra has been approached to play Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Rawat’s character in the upcoming biopic which is being filmed on the cricketer.

Earlier, the names of Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor and Kriti Sanon were discussed in several sections of media for the role of Sakshi. According to reports in NDTV, Parineeti is the latest to have been approached for the role. NDTV quoted a source saying, “The makers are keen to sign Pari as she is as bubbly as Dhoni’s wife. Moreover, she has worked with Sushant Singh Rajput in Shuddh Desi Romance and their pairing had been appreciated. So, she is high up on the makers’ wishlist to be cast opposite Sushant yet again.”

The biopic titled MS Dhoni: The Untold Story is being directed by Neeraj Pandey. The film touches the Indian limited-overs captain’s professional and personal life. So it’s believed that the role of Sakshi will be pretty important. However Parineeti Chopra’s spokesperson denied this. One will still have to wait to get a confirmation on this.
