M.S. Dhoni copies Rajinikanth, poses in ‘Kabali’ style

Tamil superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Kabali’ and completed almost four weeks of successful run in theatres, but fans are still reeling under the ‘Kabalimania’. Cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni has become the latest celebrity to have been bitten by the ‘Kabali’ bug.

Dhoni, who calls himself a true-blue Rajinikanth fan, attempted to pose like the superstar from his latest film ‘Kabali’ and shared it on Instagram. “Tried copying the pose of The One and Only THALAIVAR,” the national cricket team skipper captioned the photograph.

The photograph has Dhoni imitating a pose from a ‘Kabali’ poster where Rajinikanth is seen overlooking the Malaysia city skyline with legs crossed and hand resting on the side.

‘Kabali’ has been directed by Pa Ranjith and produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu and featured Radhika Apte, Dhansika, Attakathi Dinesh, Kalaiarasan and Taiwanese actor Winston Chao. The movie saw Rajinikanth in the role of an aging gangster who works for the betterment of his community in Malaysia.

Meanwhile, Dhoni is awaiting the release of Sushant Singh Rajput starrer ‘MS Dhoni – The Untold Story’, which is a biopic on his life. He had also unveiled the trailer of the film recently in Jabalpur, Delhi and Mumbai along with Sushant and director Neeraj Pandey and co-producer Arun Pandey. The movie is set to release in theatres on September 30.
