As fans all over India celebrates the release of Sushant Singh Rajput‘s starrer, ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’, it’s ironic that the residents in MS Dhoni‘s ancestral village won’t be able to watch the movie on the big screen.
This is why no one in Mahi’s ancestral village will watch Dhoni’s biopic
The ancestral village of the Indian skipper, Lawali, lies in the Almora district of Uttarakhand, and it won’t be easy for the villagers or Dhoni’s uncle Ganpat, to watch it in a movie hall because the nearest theatre is 115 km away. The district headquarters of Lawali, Almora, is 75 kilometres away but there are no cinema halls there.
Almora resident, Deep Joshi says: “Two cinema halls used to operate in Almora, but they closed down about eight to nine years ago.”
The day they will watch the movie
Because of the remote location, the release of the film has failed to excite the villagers of Lawali. In fact, they will now have to wait for the day when the movie will be screened on television.
