MS Dhoni | Fawad Khan’s Virat Kohli role ‘Surgically’ removed from the Movie | Trailer
At the time of the release of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Bollywood media mentioned that Fawad Khan, the Pakistani actor who refused to condemn terrorist attacks on India, was the part of this film. Fawad Khan is playing the role of talented and flamboyant Indian cricketer and test captain Virat Kohli.
But Fawad Khan was nowhere to be found in the film upon its release. There were several speculations as to whether he was the part of Dhoni biopic or not; if he was then why didn’t his character of Virat Kohli make it to the final cut.
A source close to the film revealed that Fawad Khan was indeed a part of the film. In fact he had even shot for his part with director Neeraj Pandey and lead actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The equation between Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni was an integral part of the film. In fact Fawad’s role was supposed to be a surprise package for the fans of both Virat and Fawad. However, the Uri attacks happened and soon after the Pakistani artistes issue became a debate thanks to political and social media outcry against the Pakistan actors. Fawad Khan did not help matters when he refuse to condemn Uri Attack and support Pakistan’s government’s position on returning to his country.
- So no Virat Kohli or Fawad Khan for you in the movie.
