A photograph of former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is going viral on social media. No, it’s not any ordinary image, instead it is a look from one of his upcoming advertisements. The viral pic features the cricketer dressed as a cop. “MS Dhoni as a police officer in an ad,” a user captioned the post, while sharing the image.
MS Dhoni holds the honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Indian Territorial Army unit of the Parachute Regiment (106 Para TA battalion). The 38-year-old was accorded the honour by the Indian Army in 2011.

The four-time IPL winning captain will lead CSK at the upcoming season of the T20 league. He has led CSK to four Indian Premier League titles in the year, 2010, 2011, 2018, 2021.
At the IPL mini auction, held last year, CSK paid a whopping sum of Rs 16.25 crore to include all-rounder Ben Stokes in their team. With CSK’s bid, Ben Stokes was able to equal the mark of Chris Morris and became the joint third-costliest player in the history of IPL auction.
Chennai Super Kings would be looking forward to clinch the title for the fifth time this year.
Meanwhile, Dhoni was recently named by peers such as Chris Gayle, Anil Kumble and Robin Uthappa as the most selfless player to ever play in the IPL. It happened during a special rapid-fire interview round on Jio Cinema.
