Sushant Singh Rajput went on to become a bankable actor when he starred in cricketer MS Dhoni’s biopic- ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’. The film helmed by Neeraj Pandey went on to mint big bucks at the box-office. And for quite some time now reports of its sequel on the anvil are doing the rounds. However, if the alleged equation between Dhoni and his childhood friend Arun Pandey(who also co-produced ‘M.S.Dhoni’ biopic) is anything to go by then perhaps we might not get to see the sequel anytime soon.
According to a report in SpotboyE, things are not cordial between Dhoni and his childhood friend Arun Pandey. Interestingly Dhoni is managed by Arun’s management company Rhiti Sports. And this collaboration was quite successful for both of them. The report in the entertainment portal also suggests that now that things have soured between Arun and Dhoni, the cricketer is currently allegedly being handled by his wife Sakshi Dhoni, and his childhood friends Seemant Lohani and Mihir Diwakar.
However, Arun refuted all these reports and said, “Who told you this? There are various aspects in business and I am still also working for Dhoni in the same capacity as earlier.”

Sushant has expressed his desire in taking forward the story of Dhoni on the celluloid. Reportedly the sequel of Dhoni biopic will revolve around his tenure as the captain for the IPL team Chennai Super Kings and its two-year suspension owing to the allegations of match-fixing.
Now it has to be seen when this sequel goes on the floor or if it is even being made in the first place.
