M. S. Dhoni – The Untold Story is setting new records just like Dhoni himself. The film has taken a grand opening on Friday, with even First Day First Show attracting huge crowd. This biopic has earned 21.30 crore on Day 1, which is immense. Of course, this was expected considering Dhoni’s popularity across India and his millions of fans. In south region too, this movie is getting a marvellous response, Dhoni being hugely popular in Chennai.
This opening day collection has surpassed many big films of 2016 such as Fan (19.20 crore), Housefull 3 (15.21 crore), Rustom (14.11 crore) and Airlift (12.35 crore). This fact is interesting because this biopic doesn’t have any big starcast but it is still receiving such massive response due to Dhoni’s gigantic fan following. The word of mouth for the movie is fairly good so Saturday and Sunday earnings will be even more and repeat viewing is also quite possible due to cricket fans.
It is now expected that this Neeraj Pandey directorial can easily cross 50 crore mark in its opening weekend itself. 100 crore is on the cards for the film. M. S. Dhoni – The Untold Story stars Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role of Dhoni. It also stars Anupam Kher, Kiara Advani and Disha Patani.
