MS Dhoni had a dream start as the captain of Indian cricket team. He led the side to its maiden T20 World Cup victory and many subsequent series wins.
The only thing as famous as his captainship (if not more), were his long hair. Who can forget former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf asking Dhoni to not cut his hair after seeing his excellent performance in one of India’s series against Pakistan.
He later went on to lead India to ODI World Cup victory, but this time things were different. As promised in a mannat, he went bald after winning the trophy and since then has kept his hair short.
MS clearly grew over the style and so did we. But in his latest advertisement for Snickers, Dhoni sported the same look and fans couldn’t help but think of good old times, when he was still the captain of the side.
He was given the look by famous hair stylist Sapna Bhavnani, who also posted a cute video of the two dancing in short skirts.

The reactions on Twitter were both nostalgic

Should see in context of ad, as a standalone pic looks like a aging superstar trying to reclaim his lost youth.— kgrao (@kgrao1980) March 5, 2018
