During the unveiling of the soundtrack and video for MS Dhoni‘s debut movie production venture, Let’s Get Married (LGM), the cricketer was at his most amusing, openly inviting Kollywood star Yogi Babu to join the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise next season.
Notably, Yogi Babu questioned the famous cricketer if he has any room for him in the team, to which Dhoni responded that with Ambati Rayudu’s retirement announcement, there is an open spot in the team.
The 42-year-old further warned that because Yogi Babu is busy creating films, he may not have enough time. Moreover, he added that the bowlers bowl really fast in the Indian Premier League, which can eventually hurt him.

“Rayudu (Ambati) is retired. So, we do have a place for you in CSK. I’ll speak to the management. But, you are so busy in films. I’ll tell you, you have to play consistently. They bowl very fast and they bowl to injure you only,”
Dhoni mentioned during the launch.
MS Dhoni has become synonymous with the Chennai Super Kings. Under his capable guidance, CSK have won five IPL titles, making them the joint-most successful club in the competition’s history, along with Mumbai Indians.
Meanwhile, when asked about his relationship to Chennai, the batsman stated that he has been adopted by Tamil Nadu since signing up for the franchise, and that producing his first film in Tamil is simply fate.
“When Sakshi came up with the idea and explained everything, I said we are making it in Tamil and its destiny, which I believe in. My Test debut happened in Chennai, my highest Test score is in Chennai, when it comes to cricket a lot of things happened which I am proud of, it happened in Chennai. Not to forget, once IPL started in 2008, I was adopted by Tamil Nadu,”
