Former India captain MS Dhoni is thoroughly enjoying his time off the field these days after leading Chennai Super Kings to their record-levelling fifth IPL title in IPL 2023. The ‘Captain Cool’ has been spotted several times over the past month while travelling with his family or celebrating his birthday along with his dogs at his farmhouse. Recently, another video of MS Dhoni is going viral all over social media where he could be seen travelling with his wife Sakshi Dhoni on a flight.
In the viral video, Dhoni can be seen sleeping peacefully in his seat as an air hostess records herself. Moving ahead in the video, she also brings herself into the frame and she’s seen gushing over the presence of the Chennai Super Kings skipper on the flight. However, the video hasn’t gone down well with Dhoni’s fans who are slamming the air hostess for invading the cricketer’s privacy.

Notably, aircraft workers have openly expressed their liking for the former India captain in the past few months as several other videos of people having their fanboy moment in flight with Dhoni emerged earlier this year.
Dhoni’s fandom reached sky height during IPL 2023
During the IPL 2023, a pilot flying Chennai Super Kings’ plane made a special announcement for MS Dhoni and requested him to continue captaining CSK for upcoming years and give up thoughts of retiring. The IPL 2023 was expected as Dhoni’s last season as fans all across the country thronged to the stadiums to see their beloved ‘Thala’ in action for one final time.
However, after CSK won the IPL, much to the delight of his fans Dhoni revealed that he will return to the field in the 2024 season as well, as a return gift to his admirers for their unwavering support throughout the season.
Another video of Dhoni went viral a few weeks back where he was offered a bunch of chocolates by an air hostess on a flight and was spotted playing Candy Crush. Despite Dhoni’s international retirement four years back, the craze and love for the former India skipper continue to grow all over India.
