Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan won’t be seen playing a cameo role in the upcoming biopic ‘M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story’. There was a buzz that this charming actor will make a cameo appearance in ‘M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story’ by portraying the star cricketer Virat Kholi. All Fawad fans out there were eager to see him portray Kholi but these rumours have now become baseless.

‘M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story’ is a biopic on the Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and is based on his life and how this boy from Ranchi became the most successful captain of the Indian cricket team.

Bollywood actor, Sushant Singh Rajput would be portraying the Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni . The movie also stars Anupam Kher, Bhoomika Chawla, Kiara Advani, Herry Tangri and Disha Patani. Apart from Hindi the film would be dubbed and released in Tamil, Telugu and Marathi. The film is all set to hit screens on 30 September this year.

A leading entertainment daily has now said that, “Fawad is not doing M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story. He is surprised to know from where these reports are coming. He is currently gearing up for the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil only.”

Fawad is currently in news as certain Indian political parties are putting pressure on Pakistani actors to Voluntarily leave India within a time span of 48 hours or else they will be pushed out of the country.

The actor would be seen in the upcoming Karan Johar film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ under Dharma Productions. ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is a Hindi Romantic drama film.
