Former India captain MS Dhoni’s love for football is not hidden from the world. Recently MS Dhoni was spotted playing a football match with actor Ranveer Singh & Delhi Capitals Captain Shreyas Iyer in Mumbai on Sunday evening. MS Dhoni is all set to play in an all-star football match later this month.
MS Dhoni & Ranveer Singh were seen having a light moment during the practice football match. Filmfare’s Official Twitter handle shared their picture & captioned it as “#RanveerSingh and #MSDhoni were clicked in an awesome mood at the All-Stars practice this evening.”
In MS Dhoni’s biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold story we have witnessed that MS Dhoni is an ardent fan of football & used to play football in his school days. MS Dhoni’s coach asked him to join cricket & focus on it instead of focusing on football. But even today, Dhoni loves playing football & has been a part of various all-star football matches that witness cricketers & Bollywood stars coming together for a good cause. Its matches are mostly played in Mumbai.

Ranveer Singh also shared the pictures from yesterday’s football practice match where he is seen with Dhoni. The duo can be seen sitting on the ground and sharing a light moment. “Bade bhai ke charno mein hamesha. My Jaan,” Ranveer captioned the Instagram post.
Further praising MS Dhoni Ranveer Singh said, “I was even injured at the time, but I worked through the pain in the hope that as a reward for my sincere efforts, I would be granted a chance to briefly meet MSD and maybe get a photo with him. When I finally met him, I was completely awestruck. He was so humble, so down-to-earth, full of grace, and exuded an unmistakable aura of kindness. My love, respect, and reverence for him grew even stronger.”
Another cricketer who is fond of playing football is none other than Shreyas Iyer. He was also seen playing football along with MS Dhoni & Ranveer Singh in yesterday’s all-star football practice match. He seemed unstoppable according to Ranveer Singh, who had to pull him to stop him. By sharing a picture with Shreyas Iyer on his Instagram story Ranveer Singh wrote, “There was no other way to stop him @shreyas41.”
