MS Dhoni who has a passion for mobikes, visited the Pink City on Tuesday for a photo shoot of a two-wheeler company. The India captain, who is the brand ambassador of TVS Motor Company, one of India's leading two-wheeler manufacturers, was seen riding bike with children on his shoulders. The fans had gathered in large numbers at Mahaveer Nagar of Chitrakoot colony where the photo shoot took place, but were denied entry by the police. Even the media was not allowed inside the premise.
"The Asia Cup is round the corner and the dangerous' stunts by him could jeopardise his career," feared one of his fans. "Dhoni has given Indian cricket some of the finest memories to cherish forever. He was questioned and criticised for his decisions after India were knocked out of the T20 World Cup. He has a task cut out to redeem the prestige of the country, so I feel the timing of the shoot is ridiculous. Earlier, Dhoni blamed the IPL parties for WC debacle. But if Team India fail to live upto expectations again, then who is to be blamed. Photo shoots?" he asked.
The India captain is likely to be here for three more days to complete the assignment. Reacting to Dhoni's sudden decision for a photo shoot just before the Asia Cup, one of the officials of the Rajasthan Cricket Academy (RCA) said, "I believe he has taken the permission from the board."
