Even as M S Dhoni-The Untold Story starring Sushant Singh Rajput hits theatres on Friday, September 30, the latest reports state that Sunny Leone's Beiimaan Love, which was supposed to clash with Sushant's film, has been pushed to a later date.
A source told Bollywood Life: "Yes, the film has now been pushed all the way to October 14." Rumour has it that since the buzz around Beiimaan Love is very low, the makers have decided not to release it with M S Dhoni-The Untold Story. Now with the delay in the film's release, the makers intend to use the extra few week's time to promote the film.
Further, M S Dhoni-The Untold Story is releasing on a record screen count of 4500, which leaves very few screens for Beiimaan Love.
Meanwhile, M S Dhoni-The Untold Story will showcase the journey of the Indian skipper from working as a ticket collector to becoming the captain of the Indian cricket team. The film will also throw some light on the struggles and lesser-known facts about Dhoni's life before he attained success as a cricketer.
Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film also stars Kiara Advani as Dhoni's wife Sakshi, Bhumika Chawla as his sister, and Rajesh Sharma as his coach.
On the other hand, Beiimaan Love is a revenge drama, directed by Rajeev Chaudhari and features Rajniesh Duggall opposite Sunny.
