Dhoni says no to commercial brand endorsements amid Covid-19; gearing up to venture in organic farming

“He has stopped brand endorsements and has said that till life comes to normal, he won’t do any commercial activity.”


Former Indian Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has decided not to do any commercial endorsement amid the Covid-19 pandemic and instated solely focus on the launch of his own environment-friendly fertilizers soon.

Dhoni who was last seen playing International cricket in World Cup 2019 is on sabbatical from cricket since then. He is keeping himself busy with organic farming.

“Patriotism is in his blood, be it serving for the country (in defence) or (farming) the land, he’s very passionate about it. He has about 40-50 acres of farmland and he is busy growing organic crops like papaya, banana there,” said his manager and childhood friend Mihir Diwakar while speaking to press.

“He has stopped brand endorsements and has said that till life comes to normal, he won’t do any commercial activity.”

Diwakar also said that along with Dhoni he will team up to launch their organic fertilizer under Neo Global. “We have a team of experts and scientists and they have developed the fertilizer and it should be launched within two-three months,” he added.

The World Cup-winning swashbuckler turned 39 on Tuesday. Birthday wishes poured in from all over the world that took social media by storm. “I spoke to him past midnight. It was a normal business talk. As usual, Dhoni would be at home with his family, with a quiet birthday celebration,” said Diwakar.
