MUMBAI: Sushant Singh Rajput starrer MS Dhoni biopic which boasted of Fawad Khan’s special role in the film no longer has the Pakistani actor’s part, sources reported.
Fawad, who was playing the role of Indian cricketer Virat Kohli in the biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story has had his role chopped off right before the release of the movie after the director received threats from Indian extremists.
The threats came after the Uri attacks which bode ill for all Pakistani artistes working in the neighbouring state, who received ultimatums to leave the country and a subsequent ban by the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA).
The role has been allegedly dropped to prevent a reaction and avoid negative publicity. –SAMAA
