He has inspired millions of Indians with his gutsy captaincy and flamboyant batting style but now the name of Indian cricket team skipper M S Dhoni will don the posters of director Prakash Raj's upcoming film.
Titled DHONI, the Tamil film is a bilingual movie that will hit the silver screen in two languages - Tamil and Telugu.
Directed by five time National award winning actor turned producer Prakash Raj, the film will feature Bollywood beauty Mugdha Godse and Raj in the lead roles.
The music of the film has been composed by Ilaiyaraja. DHONI will be produced by Prakash Raj's Duet Movies.
"DHONI...first look of the bilingual film I'm directing in Tamil n Telugu. Another journey begins!" Raj had tweeted.
Dhoni and Indian team is currently touring England where they have been badly thrashed by the hosts by 4-0 margin in the Test series.
His side was also defeated in the single T20 match of the tour and is already down by 2-0 margin in the ongoing One Day International series.
Team India may have showcased a flop show in the English turf but it will be interesting to see how DHONI performs at the box office when it hits the silver screen on Dec, media reports said.
