But the cricketer Dinesh Karthik has expressed his displeasure over his portrayal in the movie. He was mentioned in a scene in which selection panel discusses his name with Sourav Ganguly. Ganguly decided to choose MS Dhoni over Dinesh Karthik as they were the only two options that were in contention ahead 2004 Bangladesh tour.

Karthik has disagreed to this and he was surprised to see the scene. He admitted that he has never cribbed about not being picked in the team. As per reports, Dinesh Karthik said,
I watched it (M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story). I was surprised actually, that there was a scene involving me. But I never sort of felt Dhoni was selected ahead of me. I never crib about things. I have never asked any selector why I wasn’t picked. I always believed that if you have the skill, then you will find a way to get an opportunity.
The movie also kept a suspense on the three names that MS Dhoni decided to remove from the Indian Team ahead of the Australia tour. It is speculated that the three players were Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman.
