New Delhi: There's no denying the fact that MS Dhoni's biopic has generated a lot of buzz in Bollywood circles.

If the the initial response to the trailer and music is anything to go by, one can be relatively sure that M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story will be the biggest hit of 2016.

The project has been smartly marketed by the producers, relying on the popularity of not just Sushant Singh Rajput but also Dhoni.

India's limited-overs skipper has accompanied Sushant at most of the promotional events to talk about the film and its objective.

While Sushant and his portrayal of Dhoni is this biopic's biggest USP, there are some other characters who form an important part of the script. 

One of them is star Indian batsman and Test skipper Virat Kohli. Considering the duo has played so much cricket together, a Dhoni biopic without the Delhi cricketer would have appeared incomplete.

Despite the producers' best efforts to keep it under the wraps, it has now emerged that Pakistani actor Fawad Khan has essayed Virat's role in the film.

After this revelation, there is now increased curiosity around this movie.

Complete cast of the film

Mahendra Singh Dhoni – Sushant Singh Rajput

Sakshi Dhoni – Kiara Advani

Pan Singh (Dhoni’s Father) – Anupam Kher

Yuvraj Singh – Herry Tangri
