The official first look poster of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story was unveiled by Sushant Singh Rajput last evening on Twitter. Going by the teaser poster, it appears that the film will give us an insight into the lesser known side of India's most successful captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

The film is keenly awaited not just because it is a biopic of probably one of India's most celebrated sports personality, but also because it comes from director Neeraj Pandey who has a track record of making commercially successful and critically acclaimed films like A Wednesday, Special 26, and Baby.

Sushant Singh Rajput is expected to visit the sets of the pre-match show and give the teaser trailer a grand launch. The teaser trailer will be simultaneously put up on Fox Star Studios official YouTube channel.
