Regional language film industry is booming: Neeraj Pandey
Mumbai, Aug 18 (IANS) Filmmaker Neeraj Pandey’s upcoming biopic “M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story”, which is set to be dubbed in Marathi, says he is excited with the local language release as the regional language film industry is booming.
The film, which is based on Indian cricket skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has already been dubbed in Tamil and Telugu. This would be the first time a Hindi biopic is getting a Marathi release.
“The love for M.S. Dhoni in this country is unparalleled. Through this film, our effort is to show his life, his journey, his struggle… The regional language film industry is booming and the set of audiences seeing local language content is fairly different than those watching Hindi cinema,” Pandey said in a statement.
The “Baby” helmer adds that Dhoni’s life is an “universal story”.
“It transcends languages, people across the country love him for his work towards our motherland and we are excited to present Dhoni’s life closer to his fans through these local language releases,” he added.
Co-produced by Arun Pandey and Fox Star studios, “MS Dhoni – The Untold Story”, which stars Sushant Singh Rajput, is set to release on September 30.
