Akshay Kumar wanted to be a Part of M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story but turned down.

Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar have come together to give hits like Special 26 and Baby and we hear that when the Khiladi heard about Pandey making a biopic on Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he immediately volunteered for the lead role.

Akshay, who is one of the fittest actors in the film industry, spoke to Neeraj about starring in the film, but Pandey turned down the actor by claiming that Dhoni and Kumar do not resemble each other at all. Kumar grudgingly agreed and Sushant Singh Rajput was signed up to play Captain Cool.

Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film is set to release on September 30.
