Why Neeraj Pandey Rejected Akshay Kumar for MS Dhoni Biopic?

Neeraj Pandey during a press conference on Friday said that, “Sushant is a very subtle & duty bound actor. When I approached him with the script, he read the script very finely also he has picked up the body language of MS very well. Sushant proved himself the laudable actor for this role.” Neeraj also said that, he didn’t choose his all-time favorite actor Akshay Kumar for this movie because he felt that Akshay won’t fit on the screen to play young age of  Dhoni around an 18-20-year-old boy. The Akshay & Neeraj duo has given the box office several hits like, ‘Baby’, ‘Special 26’ and ‘Rustom’.
