The former Indian captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, is in the twilight of his career and he might hang up his boots in the next couple of years. If the reports are to be believed, the wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni has already started his post retirement planning and is investing INR 300 cr in a five-star hotel.
The veteran has already received an approval to open a five-star hotel in Ranchi. The new venture is being initiated by his Rhiti Travels and Ticketing Pvt Ltd and there are speculations that the venture would employ at least 500 people.
Five-star hotel is not the first business of Dhoni
Dhoni was an excellent captain for India for 10 years and he was termed as one of the most clever players and the one who could read the game. It seems that off the field too he is doing the same and keeping his post retirement plans ready. Apart from the hotel, the 36-year-old recently opened the first store of ‘Seven’ which is a sports apparel brand of Dhoni’s Rhiti sports. He is the owner and the brand ambassador of ‘Seven’.
According to the reports, Dhoni is also planning to set up a coaching academy in Dubai Pacific Sports Club (PSC), in the UAE. He also has a chain of gyms planned to open around the country. Besides cricket, MDS also has a notable presence in other sports thanks to his various ownerships. He is the co-owner of Indian Super League franchise Chennaiyin FC and Hockey India League team Ranchi Rays.
The World Cup winning captain is currently the part of India’s ODI and T20I squad which is playing the series in Sri Lanka. India is leading the 5 match series 1-0. Men in Blue are also looking good in the second ODI as the Sri Lankan middle order has once again collapsed. As of now, there are no serious questions over Dhoni’s place in the side. But recently the chief selector MSK Prasad mentioned that Dhoni will have to perform to stay in the side.
