MS Dhoni reacts to getting photographed on vacation ahead of IPL 2024 auction, video goes viral


Ahead of the forthcoming IPL 2024 auction, captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), MS Dhoni, is enjoying some quality time with his family while on vacation in Uttarakhand. The former captain of India once again demonstrated his lack of social media savvy.

In a video that was posted on X, Dhoni could be seen pleading with people to stop filming him while taking a call and then turning his phone over to security. The 42-year-old was reacting as he waited for someone to accompany him on what appeared to be a hike. He said:

Are mobile niche karo. (Please, take down the mobile)”

In another video, Dhoni reacted cheekily to a lady welcoming his wife Sakshi in traditional style. He said:

Wo to chu liya aapne, photo nahi liya to aap dubara chuoge (You already touched her, but they didn’t click the photo. So, you’ll do it again.)

During an interview back in 2018, Dhoni revealed that he rarely used his mobile phone. He said (via DNA):

“Me and technology, there is a big divide. I don’t use phones so much and there are a lot of stories I don’t pick up phones. But I do use technology as well. Technology has to be used in the right way.”

On MS Dhoni, Ravi Shastri spoke candidly

In a previous interview, former India head coach Ravi Shastri disclosed that MS Dhoni refrained from using a cell phone. On Shoaib Akhtar’s YouTube channel, he informed him:

If he can avoid having the phone in his hand, he will do it. Honestly, till today, I don’t have his number. I never asked for it. I know he hardly has his phone. And if you have to get in touch with him, you know how to. I am saying he’s that kind of a person.

senior cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle also revealed that it’s almost impossible to connect with Dhoni via phone.

“You can never call him on the phone. I have met Dhoni only once socially. In all these years, I have met him only once. Because you cannot get in touch with him. He doesn’t carry a mobile phone. He’s got a mobile phone that only a very very close people know the number.”
