Sushant Singh Rajput starrer M.S. Dhoni : The Untold Story, which is also set to release in Marathi, Tamil and Telugu version simultaneously, faces a hurdle in Maharashtra.
Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena (MNCKS), the film wing of Raj Thackeray’s MNS is against the release of Marathi dubbed version of the film.
According to Indian Express, Ameya Khopkar, the president of MNCKS said, “By dubbing such movies in Marathi you are creating competition for local films, which are already facing problems. A Maharashtrian as it is follows Hindi. If he wants to see the film, he can watch it in Hindi.”
He further added that, “If they (the makers of the film) do not take back this dubbed version we will protest in a democratic way.”
Directed by Neeraj Pandey, this biographical sports drama also stars Anupam Kher, Disha Patani and Kiara Advani in key roles. The film is scheduled to release on 30th September.
