MS Dhoni’s popularity does not stop at Eden Gardens or Wankhede. He is a true global phenomenon even at the box office.
Producers Fox Star Studios said that biopic MS Dhoni The Untold Story has earned Rs 204 crore at the box office globally.
The film which was released on September 30 has earned Rs175.7 crore in India and Rs 29 crore overseas, producers said.
Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film features Sushant Singh Rajput as Dhoni and also stars Kiara Advani, Disha Patani, Anupam Kher and Bhumika Chawla, as screen versions of the iconic cricketer’s family members.
The film is likely to become the third highest grosser of this year, leaving behind Rustom starring Akshay Kumar.
MS Dhoni movie has so far collected Rs 6 crores less than Rustom’s lifetime collection. Rustom has collected Rs 127.49 crore, giving Akshay Kumar another hit this year besides Housefull 3.
With no big release till Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay till Diwali, MS Dhoni could easily take over Rustom as the third biggest hit of this year.
The movie is doing fairly well even on weekdays. – CINEWS
