Bengaluru, Jan 11: India's limited overs captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is preparing to face Australia in the 1st of the 5-match ODI series starting tomorrow (January 12) in Perth but a video of his has become a big hit in the country since yesterday (January 10).
"Captain Cool" Dhoni, who is not known to display his emotions on the field and off it, is seen in a new TV commercial, making dance moves in a 'Dhoti' with Tamil film actor and India's well-known dancer Prabhu Deva. (1st Ind-Aus ODI preview)
The video where Dhoni and Prabhu are seen shaking their legs, is part of an advertisement for 'TVS Star' bikes.
During the Indian Premier League (IPL), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the tournament's fans were familiar with West Indies' all-rounder Dwyane Bravo dancing on the field. However, this is new for the fans. And they are loving Dhoni's new avatar.
India face Australia in 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is from Tuesday. In this year's IPL, Dhoni will play for Team Pune after CSK were suspended for 2 years.
