All's Not Well Between MS Dhoni And His Childhood Friend Arun Pandey? Sushant Singh Rajput's Dream Of Playing The Legend Again Goes Up In Smoke?
Is there a problem between MS Dhoni and his childhood friend Arun Pandey? Now just in case you're asking who is Arun Pandey, well let us quickly run you through about his role in Dhoni's life. Pandey may have started off by bowling left arm deliveries to give practice to Dhoni, but he soon started his sports management company, Rhiti Sports and signed up Dhoni for a whopping mount. It is reported that Dhoni's brand value jumped after he joined hands with Pandey from Rs 40 crore it became Rs 100 crore in no time. Rhiti Sports naturally prospered, and within no time, the company also had Saina Nehwal, Ravindra Jadeja, Suresh Raina, Pragyan Ojha and RP Singh on board. Pandey also had something to do in setting up the Sushant Singh starrer MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. Its' said that it was Pandey who first came up with the idea of the Dhoni biopic after encountering an incident at the airport after the 2011 World Cup. Later, Pandey produced the  film with  Fox Star Studios.

Recently, there had been a strong buzz that the biopic may soon have its second part, which will focus on Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings (CSK) being banned for 2 years in IPL and then the Captain Cool coming back (from the Pune team) to register his 3rd win for CSK. Now suddenly, there are tongues wagging that Dhoni and Pandey might not be working together anymore. If true, this might throw Sushant Singh Rajput's dream about displaying his histrionics in the second part go up in smoke. It should not be forgotten that nothing much has worked for Sushant after he did the Dhoni biopic, his last one Sonchiriya being an awful disaster.

MS Dhoni

A source has told that Dhoni's work is now largely being handled by his wife Sakshi and two other childhood friends Seemant Lohani (aka Chittu in the biopic) and former cricketer Mihir Diwakar. "Pandey is not much in the picture anymore," the source adds. However, when we called Pande, he said, "Who told you this?" and when prodded further, would only say, "There are various aspects in business and I am still also working for Dhoni in the same capacity as earlier."

Let's wait and watch if Dhoni has to say anything on this, soon. Is Pandey still working with him with same gusto as before, or is it now Sakshi, Mihir and Seemant in his place? Till then, we are making peace with Pandey's denial. But mind you, there is no official movement  (on script) or statement (from Fox Star) on the MS Dhoni: The Untold Story Part 2 yet.
