For most of us, cricket is nothing short of a religion but at the same time, it doesn’t mean anything that is thrown at us with cricket backdrop will work on the silver screen. You would have seen quite a number of films with cricket theme and yet not working.

However, one recent release has worked and it is making one bigshot happy. We are talking about the Bollywood release MS Dhoni: The Untold Story becoming a hit. This has brought happiness to Vishnu Induri, the head of SIIMA (South India International Movie Awards).

The reason being, Vishnu is the producer of the movie 1983 which is a historical take on Indian cricket team’s first win of the prestigious World Cup. Incidentally, the success of MS Dhoni biopic will fall on Vishnu’s movie and hence this bout of happiness.
