He is also the only international captain to have won an ICC 50-over World Cup, the T20 World Cup and Champions Trophy. A film based on his life — MS Dhoni: The Untold Story — written and directed by Neeraj Pandey, was released in September 2016. It featured actor Sushant Singh Rajput as Dhoni and actress Kiara Advani as his wife, Sakshi. The actress also posed with him and his family for a photo taken on his 38th birthday.
