Speaking to reports at the Let's Get Married press meet, Sakshi Dhoni revealed that MS Dhoni is up for playing the role of a hero on the big screen, but only if there's a good script. She said, "If there’s something good, he might do it." She added, "He is not camera-shy. He has been acting in advertisements since 2006, and he is not afraid of facing the camera. So, he might do it if there’s something good." When asked about the genre she prefers to see Dhoni in, she replied instantly saying, "Action. He is always in action." Let's Get Married director Ramesh Thamilmani too shared his opinion stating, "He is a real-life superhero, and I would like to see him in a superhero film."
Sakshi also revealed that it was MS Dhoni's emotional connection with the people of Tamil Nadu that made him decide to start in Tamil with Let's Get Married. Earlier, during the LGM trailer launch event, she shared that Tamil Nadu had adopted Dhoni as their own while adding that it was a strategic decision to start with a small-budget film. She said, "We were clear that we will start with something small first. That’s the way to go. Like a child would not start walking immediately. It has to learn. That applies to us as well. Also, we wanted to start in Tamil because we have an emotional connection with people here. Language has never been a problem for us. We have started this company that will last for a long time. So, we want to begin from here. When we look back, we want this to be for starting point. We will know where we came from."
