The upcoming biopic on Indian Cricketer MS Dhoni will reportedly feature Disha Patani in the role of Dhoni's former girlfriend. Rumoured to be Tiger Shroff's girlfriend, Disha has reportedly been offered the role as the makers thought she suits the character perfectly.

Sushant Singh Rajput will play the lead role of MS Dhoni in the biopic and Kiara Advani will be seen as Dhoni's wife Sakshi. While Kiara plays the leading lady in the movie, Disha's role also appears to be a vital one.

"As there was no reference for the character, we were looking out for a young and vivacious girl. Disha fits the bill perfectly. Her character is one of the catalysts in the film. Her pairing with Sushant Singh Rajput looks good," Bombay Times quoted a source as saying. Disha was the first runner-up in Femina Miss India 2013, following which she had bagged a number of modelling projects. She has also worked in a Telugu movie titled "Lofer". However, bagging a role in this MS Dhoni biopic seems to be the big break she was looking for.

Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the biopic titled "MS Dhoni- The Untold Story" is one of the most awaited biopics of 2016. Sushant has been prepping hard to get into the shoes of the Indian Cricket team skipper. Recently, Sushant had shared a video on social media in which the actor was seen trying to master Dhoni's popular "helicopter shot". While the first attempt did not work that well, Sushant got the shot perfect in his second attempt.
