No, Amazon Prime Did Not Drop Sushant Singh Rajput's Film On MS Dhoni

A spokesperson confirmed that the movie 'MS Dhoni - The Untold Story' has never been a part of its online catalogue.

Social media posts claiming Amazon Prime Video removed Sushant Singh Rajput starrer 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story' from its catalogue, are false with a spokesperson for the company confirming that the movie was never hosted on the online video streaming platform to begin with.

The 34-year-old actor was found dead at his apartment in Bandra in Mumbai on June 14, 2020. The Mumbai Police in its prima facie investigation ruled the death as a case of suicide. Since then, the actor's death has been fodder for misinformation online. Rajput is remembered for his performance in 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story', the actor plays the role of former Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

The graphic is viral with the movie poster and the caption stating that the movie has been removed from Amazon Prime, with several social media users lashing out at the platform.
