Dhoni has been the face of several brands ever since broke through to the international scene and is still garnering a lot of offers. Recently, he was chosen as the brand ambassador of a sporting academy called ‘Run Adam’. The famous Tamil film director Jeeva Sankar got an opportunity to shoot him for the commercial of the academy ahead of the launching application in January 2018. He was all praise of the master behind the stumps after spending some time with him during the shoot.

Once in a lifetime opportunity to work with him

Jeeva Sankar revealed a lot of interesting insights about MS Dhoni after a brief conversation with him while speaking to India Today on Monday. “The team of Run Adam approached me a month back to wield the megaphone for their commercial. This seemed to be a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity and I grabbed hold of it. We shot with Dhoni for a day in Mumbai and will be shooting with youngsters who aspire to be cricketers in future for three days,” he said.

“I’m a huge fan of Dhoni and I was extremely nervous to shoot him. Dhoni was highly co-operative and he has absolutely no airs around. For a guy of a huge stature, he was comfortable and humble. My client, Dhoni’s best friend and celebrity hairstylist Sapna, manager Pandey were happy seeing the outcome. I decided to stay out of cricket and we discussed South Indian films. Dhoni holds high regards for Rajinikanth sir and his simplicity. He also asked about how films of Ajith, Vijay and Suriya’s films fare. That is when he said that he would watch Tamil films with subtitles. He specifically mentioned Suriya sir’s name and stated that he loves his films,” Jeeva added.

“After two hours of shoot, Dhoni felt comfortable and came up to me. He said that the South Indian technicians are good with their work. We had a great time shooting for the commercial. It is great to end this year on a high. The commercial may be launched on January 18 or 19,” Sankar concluded in awe of the former Indian captain.
