It’s exactly 7 years since MS Dhoni raised all the eyes to Mumbai’s skyline with an unforgettable six that guided India to World Cup victory. Again, he became the center of attraction with his latest achievement.
On April 2, 2018, Honorary Lieutenant Colonel Mahendra Singh Dhoni, dressed in army uniform, received the Padma Bhushan Award from President Ram Nath Kovind.
He is the second cricketer to receive this third highest civilian award after Kapil Dev. As his name was called, he marched past the dignitaries towards the podium with absolute ease, not to forget, looking dashing in the uniform.
One of the most celebrated players of Indian cricket team, he has always attracted favorable comments from fans filled with love and admiration. This time wasn’t different either. Also, his colleagues and celebrities from other fields joined the wagon to extend their congratulations. Here are some of the posts:
