Internet users were quick to react to the life-size wax figure of one the most celebrated Indian cricketers. While some pointed out that the statue doesn’t resemble MS Dhoni at all, others said that the figure looked more like former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar than Dhoni.

Meanwhile, speaking of Dhoni, a while back an old video of Mandira Bedi quizzing the former Indian cricketer had taken the internet by storm. The clip was from a series by Mastercard’s Priceless Moments, which the brand had partnered with him back in 2019.
In the clip, Ms Bedi asked Dhoni about the most priceless gift he has ever received. “What’s the most priceless gift that you have ever received?” she asked. The cricketer took a long pause while Ms Bedi prompted him to say “My daughter”. However, Dhoni quickly denied it and nonchalantly responded, “It wasn’t a gift, it was hard work”.
The video, shared by Twitter user Dipti Ranjan, garnered more than 1 lakh views.
