"I heard that MS Dhoni is not answering calls on his phone," Sunil Gavaskar asked the former Delhi dasher during commentary.

"If you are a Chennai Super Kings player, you will get an answer from him," remarked the Nawab of Najafgarh.

Dhoni is said to be very close with his former CSK teammates i.e. Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and even South African Faf Du Plessis. 

Dhoni is known to not entertain phone calls even from teammates. A few months back the Jharkhand-based cricketer's India teammate Yuvarj Singh also expressed a similar concern.

It was the occasion of launch of Yuvraj's fashion line, which was attended by several cricketers and celebrities, but Dhoni was missing from the event.

When asked about Dhoni's absence from the star-studded event in Mumbai, Yuvraj Singh gave a shocking response.

The stylish left-handed-batsman said Dhoni is a busy man and he doesn't pick up anybody's phone.

"I think he is very busy. I tried to find him, as usual, Dhoni doesn't pick up anybody's phone. I think he was busy with T20 games in America and I am sure he will help me through this," Yuvraj told media persons.

In the past, even former India cricketer VVS Laxman too failed to get through to Dhoni when he wanted to invite the then Test skipper to his farewell dinner in Hyderabad.
