|M.S.DHONI MOVIE WALLPAPERS|
According to reports, the movie is releasing in 5000 screens this Friday in India making it Fox Star Studios' biggest release till date (non-holiday release). Fox's last year Diwali bonanza PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO starring Salman Khan in double role fetched similar screen count.
Considering Indian captain Dhoni's huge popularity across India, M.S. DHONI: THE UNTOLD STORY will release in around 4500 screens in Hindi and the rest 500 will be released in Tamil and Telugu versions.
This is for the first time in Bollywood that a movie without having the top billed Khans – Salman, Shah Rukh or Aamir is expecting such a patronage from the viewer's resulting in a record non–holiday release.
And that's not all! The Sushant Singh starrer that traces the journey of Indian cricketing legend M.S Dhoni from a railway ticket collector to India's cricket captain spearheading India's famous 2011 world cup victory, has beaten Salman Khan's SULTAN in screen counts. The YRF produced film was released in 4350 screens in India.
M.S. DHONI: THE UNTOLD STORY is not only the biggest non holiday release in Bollywood, it's also the biggest release for a non A list three year old actor like Sushant Singh Rajput who has three films KAI PO CHE, SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE and DETECTIVE BYOMKESH BAKSHY to his credit.
