On Ganesh Chaturthi, a multitude of people gathered to witness the legendary Indian cricketer MS Dhoni, who, responding to their requests, offered flowers to Lord Ganesha with a beaming smile, spreading joy and festive spirit.

India’s former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, hopped over to Mumbai on September 20, just a day after the whole nation had a blast celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi. Once he landed, Dhoni jumped right into the action, teaming up with the Mumbai folks to soak in the festive vibes.

While the precise location of the pandal remains a mystery, an avid fan generously shared a video on platform X, capturing Dhoni dressed in a sharp all-black attire as he gracefully joined the procession. A multitude of admirers flocked to catch a glimpse of the cricket legend, and many implored him to offer flowers to Lord Ganesha, a request Dhoni gladly fulfilled, his face radiating a warm, cheerful smile.

The post featuring Dhoni garnered tremendous attention from users on platform X. Since its upload, the video has amassed a whopping 70,000 views and received over 3,000 likes, illustrating the immense popularity of the cricket icon. Fans couldn’t help but rave about Dhoni’s vibrant spirit. Earlier, paparazzi had also seized a moment in the airport, extending warm Ganesh Chaturthi wishes to the Chennai Super Kings skipper in the video, adding to the festive ambiance.

In the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL), MS Dhoni led CSK to their fifth championship victory, despite battling a persistent knee injury. Post-tournament, he prioritized his health and underwent knee surgery at Mumbai’s Kokilaben Hospital.

Dhoni, the captain when India triumphed in the ICC ODI World Cup in 2011, has fans hopeful that Rohit Sharma and his team can recreate that magic as the tournament returns to Indian soil this year. The Men in Blue will commence their World Cup campaign with a high-stakes clash against Australia on October 8.
