Sushant Singh Rajput’s MS Dhoni – The Untold Story, as the name suggests, is a biopic based on the life of MS Dhoni. This film focuses on the struggles that Dhoni has faced throughout his career and the way he overcomes them. The film also starred Kiara Advani and Disha Patani in the lead roles.

Disha Patani’s role in the film

While Kiara Advani played his wife, Sakshi Singh Rawat, Disha Patani played the character of Mahi’s ex-girlfriend, Priyanka Jha. When MS Dhoni was in his early 20s, he was training to get into India’s XI. Around that time, he met Priyanka and fell in love with her. Soon after this, he got selected for the Zimbabwe-Pakistan-Kenya Tour 2003. Helping the score along with consecutive centuries, Dhoni scored a total of 362 runs in six innings on this tour.

While MS Dhoni started getting recognised after this, he faced a huge tragedy in his life. When he returned from the tour, he discovered that Priyanka had been in an accident and could not survive the injuries. This news shocked him to the core, and he was mourning for over a year. While the country lost hope that he will recover, Dhoni bounced back and never looked back after that.
