After her last movie Fugly bombed miserably at the box office, actor Kiara Advani seems to have landed on a promising hit finally. The 23-year-old actor will be playing Sakshi Dhoni, Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's wife, in the latter's biopic, MS Dhoni — The Untold Story.

Kiara will star opposite Sushant Singh Rajput who will play Dhoni's role. Reports suggest that director Neeraj Pandey, known for movies like A Wednesday, Baby and Special 26, auditioned for Sakshi's role for almost three months before finally giving a nod to Kiara.

MS Dhoni-The Untold Story will start shooting by the end of this month.
