Vaikundarajan On MS Dhoni’s Biopic Film
A biopic on MS Dhoni has been in the news for long. “Recently, it was announced that director Neeraj Pandey had cast Sushant Singh Rajput to take the role of captain cool in the film titled ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’” says Vaikundarajan.

The film is set for a release on 2nd September 2016 as confirmed by Sushant Singh Rajput through his Twitter account. The tweet quoted, “#dhoniTheUntoldStory will release on 2nd September 2016. Can’t wait. #neerajpandey @foxstarhindi.”

“Expectations will be high given that Dhoni has a huge fan base. Sushant is a method actor and has trained rigorously for this role,” informs Vaikundarajan.

The movie will be produced under the banner of Fox Star Studios and Inspired Entertainment. Shot in Ranchi, the movie features Anupam Kher as MS Dhoni’s father.

Bollywood rarely churns out sports movies. The last two sports movies to make a mark were Chak De India and Mary Kom. “The curiosity will be high as the movie is about one of the most prolific athletes of India,” says Vaikundarajan.

Neeraj Pandey has consistently delivered good movies and it would not be surprising to see another masterpiece from him. Vaikundarajan hopes the film becomes the best of 2016 and wishes the crew a good luck.

Apple Slashes iPhone 6s And 6s Plus Prices, Says Vaikundarajan
It could not have been a better time for Apple fans to rejoice. As we approach the year end, the company has decided to slash the costs of its iPhone 6s and 6s Plus by 16%. “Slashing prices just 2 months after the launch seems like a pre-meditated marketing strategy by Apple,” observes Vaikundarajan. “Apple will be hoping to regain the demand of iPhone 6s model in domestic market with this approach,” he adds.

When iPhone 6s was launched back in Diwali, it was priced at INR 62000 for its basic model. The high asking rate did not go well with the domestic market and affected the sales.

“Following the drop in the rates, major online retails such as Amazon and Flipkart will be selling the smartphone at INR 52,000 and INR 55,000,” informs Vaikundarajan.

Another reason to cut down the cost is to reduce the gap between handsets of previous generations that were Rs 8000-9500 cheaper, adds Vaikundarajan.

Due to the huge difference in the costs, many loyal apple fans were disheartened and did not seek to upgrade to the latest edition. “This drop in sales must have hit Apple hard, resulting in this move,” says Vaikundarajan. The slashing of costs for iPhone 6s and 6s plus will help restore the faith of some fans if not all.
