Few days back Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir said the martyrs of Uri attack deserve a biopic rather than any cricketer. Gambhir recently posted a tweet that the 17 soldiers who were killed in the terrorist attack in Uri deserved a biopic as they are the best inspiration of those who laid their lives for the country.
The cricketer also uploaded a picture with a quote taken from an earlier interview, criticizing making a film on the lives of cricketers. When asked about this, MS Dhoni director Neeraj Pandey told reporters, “I’ve made films on both. We make stories. It’s not that every film should be of a particular genre or anything like that. I think as storytellers we need to talk about everything.”
“This story is about the hero in us. It’s a very motivational inspiring story. That can come from anyone. And MS is a serving Lt Colonel in the Indian Army. So that should answer your questions,” he said. Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, also responded.
“Films are made on stories. I’ve played an engineer five times in the theatre. The story wasn’t on an engineer, but the inherent story. If the story is worth telling, then you can play anything,” he said. The duo was speaking at the launch of “Har Gully Mein Dhoni” song.
The film will be releasing on September 30.
