Former India skipper MS Dhoni left the audience pleasantly surprised with his delightful sense of humor during the release of the trailer of his maiden movie production venture – LGM (Let’s Get Married).
The movie is being produced under the banner Dhoni Entertainment Pvt Ltd and stars Harish Kalyan, Nadiya, Ivana, Yogi Babu, and RJ Vijay, among others. The former India skipper made his first public appearance since leading Chennai Super Kings to the IPL title in May this year.
He along with his wife Sakshi was in Chennai for the show on Monday (July 10) and received a warm reception at the airport from hundreds of cricket fans. MS Dhoni was also the center of attention during the trailer launch. Dhoni completely stole the show when he took the mic and addressed the audience.
One of the best moments of the function took place when actor Yogi Babu asked Dhoni if he could play for Chennai Super Kings. In reply, the Chennai Super Kings’ legendary captain came up with a hilarious response, leaving everyone in the audience in splits.
MS Dhoni’s response to Yogi Babu’s request:
MS Dhoni hilariously stated that Yogi Babu can play for the franchise as one place in the team is vacant after Ambati Rayudu’s retirement. The former India batsman retired from international and domestic cricket after the conclusion of IPL 2023.
“Rayudu [Ambati] is retired. So, we do have a place for you in CSK. I’ll speak to the management. But, you are so busy in films. I’ll tell you, you have to play consistently. They bowl very fast and they bowl to injure you only,” said Dhoni.
Speaking further, Dhoni also spoke about the Tamil language and hilariously revealed that he has not taught his wife any bad words from the language. It should be mentioned that Dhoni has a long association with Tamil Nadu. He has been leading Chennai Super Kings since 2008, the first-ever IPL season.
“I didn’t teach any bad words to my wife. The reason is very simple, I don’t know bad words in Tamil. I know is some other languages,” said Dhoni.
“When Sakshi came up with the idea and explained everything, I said we are making it in Tamil and its destiny, which I believe in. My Test debut happened in Chennai, my highest Test score is in Chennai, when it comes to cricket a lot of things happened which I am proud of, it happened in Chennai. Not to forget, once IPL started in 2008, I was adopted by Tamil Nadu,” he added.
