Former India skipper MS Dhoni was in Chennai for the launch of his production house’s movie ‘Let’s Get Married’. It is a Tamil movie and Dhoni Entertainment’s first film. The star cast of the film is Harish Kalyan, Nadia Moidu, Ivana, and Yogi Babu. The film is directed by Ramesh Thamilmani. The trailer is launched by the production house in Chennai with Dhoni’s presence.
Meanwhile, during the event, the former India skipper mentioned selecting Yogi Babu in the Chennai Super Kings in place of Ambati Rayudu. The latter retired from Indian cricket after the final of the IPL 2023. The right-hander signed with Texas Super Kings but the recent policy of one-year-cooling period introduced by the Indian Cricket Board meant that he had to pull out.
“Rayudu (Ambati) is retired. So, we do have a place for you in CSK. I’ll speak to the management. But, you are so busy in films. I’ll tell you, you have to play consistently. They bowl very fast and they bowl to injure you only,” Dhoni mentioned during the launch.
I was adopted by Tamil Nadu: MS Dhoni
Apart from this, the Chennai Super Kings skipper also spoke about his bond with the team. He has been part of the team since 2008. The only time Dhoni didn’t play for the team was in 2016 and 2017 when the franchise was suspended.
“When Sakshi came up with the idea and explained everything, I said we are making it in Tamil and its destiny, which I believe in. My Test debut happened in Chennai, my highest Test score is in Chennai, when it comes to cricket a lot of things happened which I am proud of, it happened in Chennai. Not to forget, once IPL started in 2008, I was adopted by Tamil Nadu,” Dhoni said.
